Caring for a loved one diagnosed with dementia is challenging and can be demanding and stressful.
Whilst we can be focused emotionally on the diagnosis, the main thing to think about is whether your loved one’s needs are being met at home.
If a person’s dementia has progressed enough that they need more care and support than you can provide, it may be time for them to go into a care home, as they may need 24-hour care.
Their needs will likely increase, and despite your best efforts, you will possibly not be able to meet these.
It’s never going to be easy placing your loved one in an aged care home, but you also need to think about what is best for you and your family and what will enable you to make your time together positive and productive.
Homestyle Aged Care has specific memory support units in its homes.
