Developing dementia and Alzheimer's? Contact a hotline in Austria for support

Dementia and Alzheimer's might sound scary and confusing. You might have a lot of questions and doubts about how you will cope with the diagnosis. Fortunately, there are 11 hotlines in Austria that provide support with dementia and Alzheimer's, where you can get free support. Dementia and Alzheimer's can look like:

  • Being easily irritated regardless of knowing it’s nothing you would normally get upset about
  • Taking longer to complete tasks you perform regularly
  • Finding yourself repeating questions when you are asked something so that you can focus better
  • Having a hard time finding the right word
  • Sudden changes in mood, agitation
  • Confusion about place, like getting confused about where you are at the moment
  • Wandering or getting lost in neighborhoods you know well
  • You become paranoid and feel like everyone is working against you

Dementia and Alzheimer’s could leave you confused and scared. You might have many questions about what your future might look like. This is perfectly understandable. The symptoms you have been experiencing seem to be changing your life and yourself.

Coping with dementia and Alzheimer’s is a highly personal experience. It might feel easier to isolate yourself. However, research has revealed that people who reach out in times like these are more likely to find a positive meaning in this experience.
