According to the Alzheimer’s Society, two-thirds of all people with dementia are cared for in the community.
Caring for someone with dementia presents a range of practical issues that can differ from those faced by other carers. People with dementia often feel vulnerable as their condition progresses and they increasingly rely on other people to do things for them. As a carer of someone with dementia, you'll want to do everything you can to reassure and support them while helping them retain some level of independence. Although some symptoms are common to many people with dementia, each person’s experience of the disease will be different."
When a person with dementia finds that their mental abilities are declining, they're likely to feel anxious, stressed and scared. They may be aware of their increasing clumsiness and inability to remember things, and this can be very frustrating and upsetting for them. As a carer, you can help them feel more secure by creating a regular daily routine in a relaxed environment where they're encouraged and not criticised."
