Talking about Dementia Guide

Often, we avoid challenging conversations with our loved ones with intellectual disabilities. We may do this because the information seems scary, we don’t know if they will understand, or because we don’t know how to start the conversation. Talking about dementia is hard. It is scary to think about what will happen as dementia progresses. This fear makes it difficult to speak about with other people, especially adults with intellectual disability. This new guide by the National Task Group on Intellectual Disabilities and Dementia Practices, created with input from The Arc, walks you through how to tackle t his difficult part of aging with your loved ones.
