We understand how worrying and stressful it can be when faced with the reality that a loved one is living with dementia, increasing memory loss and struggling to cope alone. Watching a loved one whose life is impacted by these symptoms presented by dementia can be upsetting. Many family carers will feel guilty that they themselves are struggling to provide the care and support their loved ones needs. We can find ourselves asking the same questions, Where can I get the best care? How can my loved one continue to enjoy life? How can I better manage their changing needs?
