The goals of caring for an individual with dementia are listed in Alzheimer’s and Dementia: Basic Concepts and Guidelines for Care giving mobile app.
How does it work?
Some suggestions for dealing with an individual with dementia are listed in the app. It is important to understand the behavior of the person with dementia. Their actions, however inappropriate, are not deliberate or intentional; they are a result of the disease. When a person with dementia exhibits inappropriate behavior, do not try to argue or apply logic. There are other approaches to the situation that will lead to a better outcome. Many times you can influence the behavior by modifying the environment and your approach to the person.
