Abstract
First paragraph: Dementia does not discriminate. We are all aware of, or have experienced first-hand, the stress and distress caused when one person in a relationship receives a diagnosis of dementia. The subsequent impact on both this individual and their partner cannot be underestimated with recognition needed of the specific requirements of both. Now imagine that this is a relationship between two people with a learning disability.
