Coronavirus & dementia

The current coronavirus pandemic is a worrying time for everyone and the impact of life in lockdown has brought changes to all our lives, but for people whose lives are also affected by young onset dementia, it has raised lots of additional issues and challenges.

So we have asked people to share their stories of life in lockdown with us.  They have told us how they have adapted, what they are doing to keep busy and have shared some of the challenges they are facing as well as positive things too.  You can read their stories below.
