First Steps helps people newly diagnosed with a dementia understand the diagnosis and the changes they experience.

- the different types of dementia
- the resulting changes in the brain
- planning for the future
- strategies to remain independent for as long as possible
Participating in the First Steps Learning Series will introduce you to other individuals who are also living with dementia.
