My dad has dementia

Zoe

"It’s a bit like he’s a different person to who he used to be. But deep down I know he’s still my Dad and I still love him."

My Dad got diagnosed with dementia in the front of his brain when I was 13. I’m 15 now and it’s been hard because his dementia has made him act different. It’s a bit like he’s a different person to who he used to be. But deep down I know he’s still my Dad and I still love him. He doesn’t mean to do the things he does, he can’t help it. I have to remind myself of that so that I don’t get angry at him.
