Personal care tips with Dementia 
There are many ways to help care for people with Dementia. Here are a few:
  • Establishing routines, and creating visual reminders such as prompt labels for these routines
  • Encourage the person to accept help, whilst respecting their privacy and dignity
  • Encourage the person to do as much as they can by themselves, help where possible and ensure their independence is still there
  • Make sure they have everything they need to hand, surround them in things they need 
Reminiscence activities for Dementia 
It is good for people with Dementia to reminisce, this is because it gives the person with Dementia a sense in to their identity. It also helps them remain calm, and you can build rapport with them.
There is many ways of doing this, such as writing down things they tell you as the days go on. These things can be bought up in the future as a collective to help them remember and feel their previous experiences. 
Music is also a good way of reminiscing, discussing music with the person allows you go take them back to their era and for them to listen and remember the things music brings to them.
