Shared experiences booklet

Shared experiences is an information booklet intended to help answer some of your questions and address some of your concerns about living with Alzheimer's disease or another type of dementia.

This is a unique resource because it has gathered the thoughts, experiences and feelings of people living with dementia as an effort to provide practical tips and suggestions for others living with the disease. While the information is specific to people living with Alzheimer’s disease, it can also be helpful to people living with other dementias. We are indebted to these individuals who willingly offered their insights and experiences to assist in the creation of this booklet.

This booklet is also available in audio files. Read the whole booklet or listen to the material in segments at your own pace. Some topics deal with sensitive issues that you may not be comfortable dealing with right now. You can save them for later.
