Hi, my great uncle was recently diagnosed with early dementia ( Ive known for a few years bc ive picked up on it) and we don’t know how quickly it will effect him. He is scared. We are all scared and upset. I personally don’t know how I am going to handle it when I go and visit him one day and he doesn’t remember me. That frightens me.

Early stages or early onset? Early onset means before the age of 65.

People living with dementia never forget their loved ones. That’s a myth. They sometimes have trouble placing their loved ones on a timeline (scroll down for info on this) but they don’t suddenly forget people.
