For relatives

Our ambition is to make daily life easier for family members such as yourself and for others who provide support and care in the home.

We also hope that the information will provide support to those of you working with the care of dementia patients in a home environment. As well as for the people who want to know more and learn more about how to cope with the difficult situation that you and your family find yourselves in.

You will find information and specific advice and tips on handling the situation, and on taking care of your own personal health and well-being – a basic requirement if you are to be the support and help that you want to be. 

A practical approach to dealing with the issues faced when caring for someone in the home environment is vitally important, as the care of and approach taken to the patient are the single most important elements when looking after people with dementia.
