My Life, My Goals

My Life, My Goals is a self-help practical guide for helping people in the early stages of dementia achieve their goals.  The step-by-step digital guide, available for download onto a computer, tablet or phone – or to print at home – is published by the University of Exeter, Alzheimer’s Society and Innovations in Dementia.  “Having goals is very important because you can see yourself being able to do something,” says Allison, who lives in Dundonald in Northern Ireland.  The guide, which can be accessed on the Alzheimer’s Society website, offers an individualised approach in which a care partner may be able to help develop practical strategies and support problem-solving.
