Being diagnosed with dementia is never easy and one of the first things that come to mind is that you'll have to give up the freedom of living on your own. But the truth is that dementia is experienced differently by everyone and so is the rate at which symptoms become worse. With the right support and care, it is possible to live independently for many years.
As the illness progresses, dementia patients find it more difficult to look after themselves. This is when extra help might be needed to perform daily activities such as household duties and shopping.
The question many concerned family members often ask is whether dementia patients do better at home. And the answer is a definite yes! Here are some of the benefits of living at home with dementia:
● Being in a familiar setting makes dementia patients happy
● Patients find comfort in routine
● Living at home reduces the likelihood of depression and anxiety
