Living with dementia


All about me

Like all individuals, people diagnosed with dementia are whole people with their own values, preferences and personal life stories.

All about me is a resource for people with dementia to tell health-care providers about themselves –their needs, likes, dislikes and interests.

Knowing more about the person with dementia helps community support workers and staff in long-term care homes build relationships and support personalized care.

An editable PDF version of All about me is available for download, which allows you to type your information directly into the document.

Instructions for use: Once you have opened the document, go to “File” and select “Save as” to save it on your computer. This will allow you to continue adding and editing information. To write directly in the PDF, use the cursor to click on a section with lines. This will open a text box where you can type in your answer.

To order print copies, please contact your local Alzheimer Society.
