The benefits of dementia aids
As you may know, when a person is diagnosed with dementia old memories can be lost and simple things can be forgotten.
As a carer It is important to prepare for this by adapting the surroundings to help aid the sufferer.
By changing a few things around your care home or the patients home, you can make life much more simple.
One of the simplest things to remember is a colour. By assigning a certain colour to a certain room it can reassure the dementia suffer that they are in the right room.
For example by changing items in the bathroom to a bright red colour and removing that colour from other rooms it lets the patient know that when they see that red they are in the bathroom.
This is a simple solution that can offer the patient greater independence.
