Most of us know someone diagnosed with dementia and the struggles associated with the disease. Even the most basic, or routine tasks become almost impossible. One tip that can ease the struggle, is to incorporate stability and structure through a daily routine.
Firstly, creating a daily routine for our loved one’s that is stimulating yet familiar is a great start. We found that people that are affected with dementia/Alzheimer’s do best with a routine and tailored care plan centered around familiar activities, friends, and interests.
