Discovering that a loved member of the family has dementia is distressing, but understanding the cause for their changing behaviour may help. The most important principle to remember when caring for someone with dementia is to realise that the disease is not their fault. The person with dementia is still the same person, but now they have a disease. A person with dementia is not deliberately being difficult or demanding; they are trying to make sense of strange and frustrating changes as their world becomes more confusing. As dementia progresses, it can cause behavioural changes and problems that can be challenging, frustrating and difficult for others to deal with. This can leave carers and family members stressed, with a sense of helplessness and hopelessness. By developing a knowledge and understanding of possible symptoms and subsequent behaviours that can arise during the progression of the disease, can make it easier to deal more effectively with any challenges that arise. carers and family members
