Ask for Care

How can we best care for our loved one with Dementia?

In September 2018 Dementia Australia CEO, Maree McCabe said “In Australia more than 1.2 million people are involved with the care of someone living with dementia.” Ms McCabe went on to say “When it comes to carers, they deserve every possible support available.”

Taking care of someone you love can be incredibly rewarding and fulfilling, but it can also be a daunting, emotionally draining and mentally challenging responsibility.

As Dementia starts to progress, it may become increasingly difficult to navigate the terrain of feeling like you’re losing the family member you once knew.  As a caregiver, friend or family member, you may get frustrated with the fact that your loved one is finding it harder to communicate.

He or she may lose the ability to recognise family members’ names and faces. Equally as challenging, as Dementia begins to affect your loved one in the later stages, you will see them begin to lose their independence and become more reliant on you. This is the hardest part for both you and the person you care for.

As you read this, research is being conducted to further unveil the many facets and unknowns of the confounding condition we call Dementia, from its causes to its potential cures.

In the meantime, take comfort in knowing that there are numerous resources available to you in your community, at your local healthcare facility and here at Nurse Next Door to help you and your family manage the challenging circumstances of Dementia in the most informed and compassionate way.

Nurse Next Door provides specialised Dementia care. Our priority is senior clients’ safety and allowing them to receive care in a familiar setting—their own home. Learn more about our dedicated Dementia care services below.
