Dementia Visiting Strategy: Being There

Posted Nov 10 2008 4:45pm

I've read a number of good articles recently about how to have a successful holiday visit with a person in the middle or later stages of dementia.

Spending time with a person with moderate to advanced dementia can feel like a struggle to the caregiver because the traditional methods of communicating may be impossible.  Conversations don't exist or are one-way, it can feel hard to really share anything and of course, it seems impossible to know if any of the efforts are even making a difference.
