Dementia can take various forms, with Alzheimer’s disease being the most common. Other types include vascular dementia, Lewy body dementia, and frontotemporal dementia, each with its own set of symptoms and characteristics.
Early signs include memory loss, difficulty with familiar tasks, language problems, mood changes, and disorientation. Dementia can lead to mood swings, irritability, and withdrawal from social activities. Dementia symptoms vary, and not everyone will experience all of them. It’s essential to look for changes in behaviour or cognition.
Supporting a loved one with dementia involves creating a safe and structured environment, maintaining clear communication, and being patient and empathetic. Use our information packs to better understand the needs of your family. Consider seeking professional help and respite care when necessary.
