People with Dementia – Need to feel safe

Dementia – See the ‘Person’ not the ‘Disease’ 

People living with dementia need to feel safe and secure. It’s not all about finding out what they can and can’t remember.

Talk to them about the time they are living in now, and when they get confused about things they can’t remember, assure them of where they are and what is important to them at that time. Help them to recall, don’t force them to remember.
