Dementia affects about 1 in 7 Canadians over the age of 70 (alzheimers.org). While different kinds of dementia vary in their initial presentation and rate of progression, there are features of the dementia journey common to all. This brochure is a basic roadmap of the territory to help families orient themselves on the journey they are traveling, and see what is coming farther along the road.
