Dementia Care: Preparing for the Future

Written by: Michelle Nicols

While caring for a loved one who has been diagnosed with dementia can be a devastating journey, and even an overwhelming experience at times, rest assured that you are not alone. Worldwide, approximately 44.4 million individuals are currently suffering from dementia. By 2030, that number is expected to increase to 75.6 million.

Whether you’ve just recently realized your loved one’s diagnosis, or you’ve been aware of it for some time, you are likely experiencing a variety of fears, emotions and questions about what to expect. While adjusting to life with dementia is definitely not an easy task, it is important to remember that the more support and knowledge you have, the better you will be able to care for your loved one. Additionally, making preparations as early in advance as possible can make things much easier on everyone as the illness progresses.

Dementia Care: Making Preparations

In the beginning, you may find that you are having difficulty confronting these questions because it forces you to think about what is to come. Addressing these concerns early is essential, however, and you will likely find that both you and your loved one experience a sense of relief once the decisions have been made.
