Caring for someone with dementia can be challenging and emotional especially if they are your loved one. It is important to be informed on dementia and the symptoms that come with the condition.

In the early stages of dementia, you can provide help with daily tasks such as shopping, cleaning and attending appointments. Helping someone with dementia maintain a healthy diet is very important. People with dementia often don’t realise they are thirsty so reminding them to drink water throughout the day is a good idea.
