Healthy relationships with family, friends and colleagues are important for everyone’s well-being. The changes that occur with dementia can strain these relationships and cause confusion and misunderstanding. This section guides people with dementia, their caregivers, family and health-care professionals in ways to cope with these changes and stay connected at the same time.
