Supporting a family member with dementia

This short BBC video provides guidance on how to make living at home easier for those with dementia

We often represent clients who are living with or supporting a family member with dementia. This short BBC video provides some helpful examples that can make living at home for longer a real possibility. We have acted for a family whose mother used to be found walking the streets late at night. Their ingenious solution: at the end of the day the carer would place a sign on the inside of the front door which said 'Gentlemen's Toilet' knowing that their mother would never enter a gentlemen's toilet! Please take a moment to watch the video for more tweaks that can support you or your family member in their own home.
