Making the home dementia friendly

House 300x201

Dementia can affect a person’s memory and ability to coordinate, recognise objects, and interpret their environment. In addition, they may have other health conditions which can affect their sight, mobility, and independence. This can have a significant impact on the person’s daily life including how they function within their own home. However, with some simple adjustments you can make a home easier to manage and more ‘dementia friendly’. This not only helps the person maintain their independence for longer but it can minimise distress and frustration, thereby supporting a better quality of life.

Visit Dementia UK for some tips on how to do this.
