With COVID-19, many of us, especially our seniors, are encouraged to stay in. For those who are caregivers for seniors with dementia, how can you best help our seniors living with dementia tide over these confusing times?
Imagine your life at 60. You and your family deciding to eat out for dinner and you forgot where you placed your house keys. A few months later, it became forgetting what you read in the news that morning. “I’m just forgetful lately.”
Dementia is a chronic or persistent disorder of the brain that can affect its ability to function. It is most often caused by brain disease or injury. Dementia typically affects the elderly, more specifically those aged 60 and above.
