Everyday, worldwide, 27,000 new families are thrust into the role of caring for someone living with dementia.
Families such as yours – who want to do the best for their loved one but have no training or experience caring for an individual with cognitive challenges.
In an attempt to make things better, while balancing caregiving with already busy lives, it’s easy to actually make the situation worse without even realizing it.
Today Christy Turner, The Dementia Sherpa, will discuss how you can turn this around so that your time together with your loved one is more pleasurable.
