How to take care dementia patient?

Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life. Memory loss is an example. Besides, Alzheimer's is the most common type of dementia.

But did anyone know how to take care dementia patient?

yep.. tough responsibility indeed.. you need to give them extra attention because sometimes they might behave indecently which may hurt them.

Thought the same thing... I think the hardest would be communication with the patient and ensuring everyone emotionally stable

I have no idea about their medical conditions.. but I think the best is to provide basic needs like food, safety, companion

For inexperience individual, taking care of dementia patient for the first time is really tough.
For those got experience they know what to do and how to handle them.

Companion wise, its true.. Depends on the severity of the patient though.. but I think mid staged patients would need assistance for their daily activities.. and the worse it gets, the more supervision the patient needs.
