Emotional Support for Dementia Patients


Supporting people that have been diagnosed with Dementia is not hard. You just need to treat them normally, and not act like they cannot see you or feel things.

Supporting the person’s emotional responses: Tips for carers❤

Try to understand how the person with dementia feels.

Do not dismiss a person’s worries – listen and show them that you are there for them.

Try to enjoy the moment and try not to spend too much time thinking about what the future may or may not hold.

A sense of humor may help if the time feels right.

A huge smile and a hug makes all the difference ❤

Caring for Dementia patients is not hard, it’s rewarding. Try to listen what they want to say and be nice.
