Dementia care at home
We understand that it may become difficult working with dementia patients. Dementia and Alzheimer's disease can cause the sufferer to become confused and forgetful. So it is important to remain within familiar surroundings for as long as possible. It can become difficult to undertake easy tasks such as getting dressed or preparing food. This can lead to a person feeling vulnerable and in need of reassurance.
