Caring for someone who experiences dementia

March 29, 2012

Some resources I have found in response to questions I have been asked…

  1. Knowledge of how to deal with dementia as a Carer – the impact dementia has on my life?
  2. How can i find a better way of dealing with stress?

Information resources (*Who Cares? *Understanding Dementia *Coping with Dementia *Facing Dementia) suggest some things to consider as; looking after yourself/ taking a break and talking to others/ people in similar circumstances & people working in support of Carers.

You can talk to someone from Social Services and find/ plan support for you as a Carer and as an individual alongside your caring role, this might include speaking with your GP or another person who works in support of people (*Carers Information *Carers Needs Assessment Process  *Wrexham Carers Service)

The National (Wales) Dementia Helpline offers a confidential listening, emotional and practical support service that is available 24 hours a day (safe, confidential, non-judgemental and experienced)
