When someone is living with dementia, the people around them – as well as their surroundings and individual personality – can significantly influence their well-being. If you are new to dementia care, it can help to have some practical guidance to help you as you get to know the people you care for and start to understand more about dementia and its effects.
Each day is different provides someone starting out in dementia care with an introduction to what they might expect in the first few weeks. It contains accessible information on dementia, its symptoms and how it can affect people as well as helpful tips on dealing with areas that might at first be challenging.
As a beginner's guide to dementia care, this resource provides reassuring and encouraging advice to refer to in new situations as you put your knowledge into practice.
