What are the signs of dementia?

Are you wondering whether your loved one would benefit from dementia care? The first step is to educate yourself on what the symptoms of dementia look like so you can establish whether they may need in-home dementia care or another sort of care.

There are many symptoms of dementia, but one of the most common has to be issues with memory loss. Usually, this affects short-term memory, so this may mean that your loved one can remember things way in their past like their childhood, but not the conversation you had with them this morning.

Other common symptoms of dementia that might indicate the need for additional care including:

  • Confusion over the year, time of day, or month
  • Loss of ability to do simple tasks such as driving
  • Struggles with speech and finding the words they wish to use
  • Personality changes include increased anger, or sadness.

Why dementia care is crucial

Dementia care Australia is crucial for those suffering from this condition for two key reasons. The first is because dementia can be a progressive condition and get worse over time, by ensuring there is a carer familiar with dementia and the issues it causes, in the home, you can ensure that your loved ones’ quality of life remains high. This means that dementia carer support can help them with a variety of tasks such as cooking, eating, washing, and dressing that they may struggle to complete alone due to cognitive decline.

Secondly, it is common for those suffering from dementia to struggle with issues of safety around their home. This is because their cognitive decline may cause them to do things like go to put the kettle on and forget that it has boiled, doing it over and over again until it boils dry and becomes a fire risk. Similarly, cooking a meal can be problematic because they forget that they have items in the oven or the hob, or that metal implements cannot be used in the microwave. With a dementia carer helping them with such tasks the risks to their wellbeing are greatly reduced, and you can sleep soundly knowing they are safe and taken care of.
