Coping With Dementia
Dementia can happen to anybody, but the risk increases with age. It affects thinking, behaviour along with the capability to perform day to day tasks.
Some early warning signs of dementia include progressive and frequent memory loss, confusion, apathy and withdrawal.
Safety within the home is an important factor to give consideration to when caring for a person with dementia. The home environment can help them know where they are and to find the place where they want to go. You can do this with large orientation signs and using colour contrast to highlight essential objects or areas in the home.
