Dementia is a challenging condition that affects millions of individuals worldwide. It’s essential to understand the difference between dementia care and standard care options. Dementia is not a specific disease but rather a term encompassing a range of cognitive impairments that significantly interfere with an individual’s daily life and independence. Conditions like Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia, Lewy body dementia, and frontotemporal dementia fall under this umbrella.
As dementia progresses, it profoundly impacts memory, thinking, language, behavior, and emotional well-being. Standard care may not be equipped to address the unique needs of individuals with dementia as it requires specialised support.
