Living well - Emotional wellbeing - Coping with day-to-day emotions and feelings

Take your time and reach out to people you trust. Some people with dementia describe worrying more than usual and feeling like they are losing control. Discuss these worries with others so they can help support you in reducing the anxiety you might be feeling. Make sure to focus on the positive aspects of your life and participate in activities that you enjoy. Many people with dementia talk about the importance of humour in helping them stay positive. Others talk about the importance of faith and spirituality. The important thing is to acknowledge the emotions you are feeling and find positive ways to express those emotions.
