Chieko El-Jisri is an author of “A Patient’s Perspective” which is about a caregiver’s guide to assisting people with dementia.
If caregivers lack patience and attempt to rush or force things instead of calmly dealing with their dementia patients, conflict can be created between them.
Dementia patients cannot explain their own behaviour and are not responsible for their actions. The caregiver should endeavour to understand the severity level of the disease, and deal with it according to the dementia patient’s needs—especially in the early morning busy time, when taking care of the patient’s daily requirements, and when seeing to their patient’s emotional care.
