"Caring for someone with dementia can be challenging both physically and emotionally. If you’re caring for someone living with dementia, it’s important to understand that if their behaviour changes, it may not be anyone’s fault. It can be a good idea to talk to a health professional.
Dementia can influence a person’s behaviour including wandering, depression, anxious or agitated states, aggression, hallucinations and false ideas, and loss of inhibition. Although these can be upsetting, there are many strategies that may help. You can also visit the healthdirect website to read more about dementia.
Some of the tips below may help you to look after a person with dementia, and to also manage your caring responsibilities. They have worked for other carers so why not give them a try?"
