People living with dementia can experience changed perception. This often results in visual misinterpretation and disorientation, which can cause individuals to feel anxious, confused, agitated and distressed. However, simple changes in the environment can help.

In this video, the Social Care Institute for Excellence explains how simple changes can create a more dementia-friendly care home environment, which can have a positive impact on someone living with dementia.

This site was inspired by my Mom’s autoimmune dementia.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chaffe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. With a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia appearing on the internet every 7 minutes, the site’s focus on the best information has been a help to many over the past 15 years. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
