My loved one won’t accept help with care and their needs, what should I do?
This quite common, so don’t worry, many people who are living with dementia may feel uncomfortable or embarrassed when it comes to having someone else care for them. At Golden Services, we try to encourage your loved one to do as much for themselves as they can, whilst we support them, we do this through using different approaches until we find one that suits their requirements.
My loved one is very anxious and agitated, how can I help to calm them down?
Dementia is a very disorientating, losing your identity and independence can be very distressing. We recommend that one of the best ways to support this is that when your loved one gets angry or agitated, try and help them to identify the source of the problem, give them some space so they can calm down. You should notice what triggers their anxiety after a while, so you could take steps to reducing their exposure to these things.
