This chapter is a personal account by a husband and wife, describing the early symptoms of his dementia. From about the age of 67, there were changes in his memory, mood and behaviour and these are described using specific examples. Eventually, after about four years, he was seen by an old age psychiatrist and the diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia was made. This was a great relief to both of them, as the condition had now been recognised and there was help and treatment available. The chapter then details how they have taken positive action to make the best of things and to make what they have learned available to others.
