Caring for a person with dementia can be emotionally and physically challenging. There are various options open to you to get some additional support, and it’s important that you find the right type of help for you and the person with dementia.
Considering a care home for a person with dementia
Looking after someone with dementia can be challenging, and there may come a time when you are unable to look after them at home anymore; or it is in everyone’s interests that residential care is considered.
Admiral Nurses are specialist dementia nurses. They provide life-changing support for families affected by all forms of dementia. They help people living with dementia stay independent for longer, and support the people caring for them. This leaflet has been written by Admiral Nurses to help you understand capacity and decision making.
We know that living with dementia can be a hard and lonely experience. We have a range of information available on our website to help advise and support, as well as our Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline
