Don’t disable you’re loved one before they lose the capacity to do something – support them to find new ways instead.e.g take photos of the contents of cupboards to remind them where to find things and that the cupboards exist.
Expect good and bad days – embrace the good and support through the bad
Make plans and talk about the future – ignoring it won’t make it magically disappear.
Encourage your loved one to be involved in the community
Never contradict your loved one – live in our world as to contradict would simply confuse
TALK to your loved one about how they feel and how you feel.
Inspire others by talking freely about dementia – don’t be embarrassed.
Ask for help when you need it
