What is Dementia Care?

Dementia is a condition that affects older people in a number of ways. It commonly affects a person’s cognitive thinking including memory, communication and mood. As the condition develops over time, it becomes difficult to do daily tasks like they once used to, therefore help and assistance will be required. Many people will care for their loved one living with Dementia at home, but often it gets to a point where their care needs become too demanding, therefore the next best option will be finding professional care in a dementia care home. Those living with dementia can continue to live to the fullest with the right care and support provided by a team of care professionals.
