Our factsheet Explaining dementia to children and young people provides advice and guidance. This explains how children and young people can be affected when someone close to them has dementia. It suggests how parents can talk to their children about dementia, and ways to help them feel secure and involved. Some of the advice from the factsheet is summarised below.

The link to the fact sheet re: Explaining Dementia to Young Children takes the reader to a page regarding “Less Common forms,of Dementia”.  No mention of the topic that was offered.

Hello Winter58 and a very warm welcome to you.   You are correct, the first link did not go where expected, but here is the actual link llee intended:

I see by your Profile that you and your husband live in beautiful Portland, Oregon.   I have been there many times and love the city. 

If you think your husband will benefit from it, there is the Spousal/Partner Forum here on the Message Board.  

If you or your husband ever wish to gain more personal, one-on-one information and/or support, the Alzheimer's Assn. has a Helpline that can be reached at (800) 272-3900.   If you should call, please ask to speak to a Care Consultant.  Consultants are highly educated Social Workers who specialize in dementia and family dynamics.   They have a lot to offer, are great support, have much information and referral information, and can also assist with problem solving.  There are no fees for this service.

Sending warm thoughts your way,

J.
