Having a family member diagnosed with dementia can become a stressful and confusing time for everyone involved. We’re here to help. Stanfield Nursing Home has been providing specialist dementia care in the Worcester area for over 32 years.
Understanding dementia and how your relationship may change with a family member diagnosed with dementia is crucial. The disease can alter many aspects of a person’s cognitive and motor abilities.
Common symptoms of dementia:
- Memory loss
- Difficulty communicating or finding words
- Problems with visual and spatial abilities
- Issues with reasoning or problem-solving
- Being confused about time and place
- Mood changes
As cognitive decline progresses, you or others in your family may find these changes tough to accept. Consequently, where you may take on extra responsibilities, it can cause difficulty in other areas of life.
When a family member with dementia begins to decline, and you find yourself struggling, it is important to always ask for help.
