Abstract

As people with learning disabilities live longer, they become more likely to experience or encounter dementia. Many will live with fellow service users who have been diagnosed with the condition. This article explains why such people should be given information about dementia, tailored to meet their individual needs. It also includes a case study describing how the authors devised a computer-aided diagnostic information program for three people with learning disabilities whose housemate had been diagnosed with dementia.
