Understanding Dementia

Dementia, a multifaceted condition affecting millions worldwide, poses distinct challenges for individuals, families and caregivers. This resource aims to shed light on the complex journey through the stages of dementia - offering insights into the progression of cognitive decline, emotional impact, and the evolving care needs of those it affects.

Dementia care extends beyond medical understanding; it requires a holistic perspective that encompasses physical, emotional, and social aspects.

We aim to empower individuals, caregivers, and healthcare professionals with knowledge that can enhance the quality of life for those navigating this for the first time.

The Importance Of Person-Centred Care

Person-centred care is essential for people with dementia, as it recognises their individuality and dignity. This approach tailors care to the individual’s specific needs, preferences, and history – fostering a sense of identity and self-worth.

By placing the person at the centre of their care, it goes beyond merely addressing symptoms to understanding the individual’s background, values and aspirations. This enhances the quality of life for people with dementia and contributes to a more supportive and empathetic environment.

Person-centred care also empowers individuals, honours their autonomy, and creates a therapeutic relationship between caregivers and those they support. It reinforces the fundamental principle that every person, regardless of the challenges posed by dementia, deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
