How To Help People With Dementia Live Independently

17/10/2019




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

  • This is quite an exhaustive help sheet which goes int a lot of details about different changes in behaviours.  I like this sheet because I lead a busy life and I keep simplifying things in my mind so that I can cope with them.  So, when my mother goes pop it is because her illness is getting worse.  This sheet reminds me that she might be struggling because of a change in her environment, a change I can control.  After all, I get grumpy when someone changes my environment! 

 

Key points I extracted from this Help Sheet: 

  • Some changes directly occur because of the illness. 
  • Other changes directly occur because of the changes in the environment 
  • Learn to make the distinction between natural changes (illness) and environmental changes (you can control them). 
  • Focus on the environment. 
  • Focus on the environment: what worked yesterday might not work today. 
  • Focus on the environment. 

 

What I do: 

  • I keep the place devoid of mess but do not get too stressed about the dust.  Priorities you see.

  • 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.
