There are several types of dementia such as Alzheimer's disease, or Lewy body dementia, and all share symptoms caused by loss of cognitive functioning. This could show up as memory loss, impulsive actions or difficulty speaking. Many people with dementia may become easily agitated, exhibit physical or verbal aggression, show signs of restlessness or anxiety and many experience significant emotional distress. Some behaviors can become significant enough to alter personalities. Cognitive challenges can be so frustrating for those experiencing dementia, they may become unbearable. What is the best approach in managing the changes of dementia in your loved one?

Start with empathy. Dementia can be devastating. Understand that your loved one's behavior is caused by the disease.

Remain calm. Negative energy sparks agitation.

Avoid highly stimulating environments and activities that can overwhelm them.

Have realistic expectations. Cognitive impairment makes everything more difficult and frustrating.

Eventually, caring for your loved ones at home may become too difficult. Seeking the help of professionals may be your best option. Caring Places Memory Care communities have been helping seniors with dementia for over 30 years by providing comfortable home-like environments with specialized dementia treatment by compassionate caretakers.

The care team at River Terrace Memory Care know how difficult these changes are and are here to help provide daily life enrichment, social activities, and engagement in attempt to keep each senior functioning at the highest level possible.
