Kristina commented on Good Life Kit

Hi Kate,
The idea emerged from the feeling of uncertainty and loss that people with dementia experienced after their diagnosis, due to a lack of (personalised) information and support.
The intention is therefore that a person would be presented with the Good Life Kit at the meeting with their doctor when they are told about the diagnosis, to offer them some 'anchor' afterwards, and a constructive way to reflect on their situation, to empower them as much as possible. Almost all our consultation groups and experts favoured the idea of the Good Life Kit, and we are hoping to trial the idea next year through at least one of our healthcare partners.
