Losing Clive to Younger Onset Dementia: One Family’s Story
Clive Beaumont was diagnosed with Younger Onset Dementia at age 45, when his children were aged just 3 and 4.
Clive had become less and less able to do his job properly and had been made redundant from the Army the year before. His wife, Helen, tells of how she and the rest of the family made it through the next 6 years until Clive died: the challenge of continually adapting to his progressive deterioration; having to address the legal implications of the illness; applying for benefit payments; finding nursing homes; and juggling her responsibilities as a wife, a mother and an employee. She also describes her sense of sadness and fear as her formerly gentle husband became more erratic and aggressive as his health deteriorated.
This story offers understanding and encouragement to younger people with dementia and their friends, families and carers.
