People with dementia often feel happier when supported with daily activities and things that bring joy to their life. It's not always necessary to stop doing these things after a dementia diagnosis; they may just need to find different ways of doing them.

A person living with dementia in the early stages can benefit from a practical strategy that works for them as an individual. A care partner might be able to support problem-solving and help develop the strategy.

My Life, My Goals is a self-help guide designed to help people living with dementia, step by step, try to achieve their goals.
