Dementia – assisting children to understand

Having a relative with dementia can be really hard for young people.

A short animation has been developed by Dementia UK to help children aged 8-12 understand what having dementia means. It aims to help them understand some of the changes in their relative’s memory and behaviour, as well as giving them some practical tips for communicating with someone with dementia and continuing to enjoy quality time with them.
