How To Help People With Dementia Live Independently

How To Help People With Dementia Live Independently

17/10/2019




What I liked about this Dementia Help Sheet (link below): 

  • I like this Help Sheet as it describes this disease.  By pinning the disease into a series of word, I can briefly believe that we will ‘own it’.  Strangely enough it relaxes me as it reminds me that my life is actually normal, considering the impact of this illness has on my  mother. 

Key points I extracted from this Help Sheet: 

  • The brain degenerates and as it controls behaviour, behaviour degenerates. 
  • Recent events clearly linked to the present are often forgotten 
  • This is why they repeat themselves. 
  • Common sense should tell you that logic goes through the window. 
  • They are confused: this is entirely logical… 

What I do: 

  • I might be feeling that I am fighting on my own most of the time, but I remember I am part of a much bigger community! 

Author of this blog (Transparency):   

  • I work for CPR Global Tech and, for personal reasons, like many people, I have had to learn a lot about dementia the hard way.  As there is a natural forum on our website, it makes sense for me to share info here.
