A person suffering from Dementia may become unaware that something is wrong or why they are feeling the way they are. This can change a person’s mood and affect their normal day-to-day character.
May people suffering with dementia also suffer from depression as their self-esteem is low because of how they feel about what is going on with mental state.
FAMILY AND FRIENDS:
May experience feelings of being over whelmed in the sudden change with their loved one. This can result in visits being less frequent as some loved ones would not like to see their loved one in that state and associate their memories of the individual with Dementia or just the illness itself instead of how or who the individual was before. Also some loved ones may feel as though the individual with dementia may be depending on them too much and this can interfere with their life too.
CARERS AND OTHER HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONALS:
People looking after individuals with Dementia may experience behaviour that challenges from the individual being Cared for, or they may experience confusion from the individual. There are situations where Care staff have been told by the individual with dementia that they may want something to be done and then when the carer has performed the task as stated by the individual that they haven’t done what they had asked them or that they never asked them to do the task in the first place. This can become very stressful and confusing for the individual with Dementia and for the Carer.
