Hi Kirandip,
Providing a new diagnosis of dementia is a large part of my job. Similar to your story I recall being so nervous the first month or so in my role of what reactions we would get to sharing this news. While yes everybody reacts differently I would say the vast majority while upset at this life changing news are still quite thankful for the team’s kind approach and continual support. I think you showing sincere compassion when communicating truly helps patients in that scary moment.
