We passed this article to our Dementia Advocacy Team for their thoughts...
'Fear can take all the joy out of life & at times when we face the challenges of illness, this becomes even more so.
Completing a free ‘Living Well Plan’ with Swan may help you to work through some of your fears & put you back in control.
Your ‘Living well Plan’ states what you would like to happen to when you when you may not be able to express this yourself & informs those who make decisions on your behalf.
This may give you some piece of mind, so if you have memory loss, or have been diagnosed with Dementia, call us on 01722 341 851 or email Livingwell@swanadvocacy.org.uk and speak to our team. '
