You Are Not Alone In Your Dementia Caring Role
Are you caring for a loved one with dementia? It’s a huge challenge to live with dementia. It can be mentally and physically exhausting for everyone as you juggle the daily tasks involved in keeping your loved one safe while trying to plan ahead and access financial help and support.
You’re also dealing with the emotional turmoil of seeing your loved one change and suffer from mood swings and frustration.
It’s common for carers to feel isolated and alone. Until you experience living with dementia, it’s impossible to know how it feels. While there’s no easy solution to navigating the dementia journey, it’s helpful and reassuring to know that advice and support are available and that others understand your situation.
Dementia Help aims to help you provide the best possible care for your loved one by offering practical tips and advice.
Our founder, Christina Collison, experienced every stage of dementia after caring for her mum for almost ten years.
We understand the challenges. And we’re here to help. You don’t have to feel isolated.
