Problems families dealing with dementia may face

I recently stumbled across the website,, which is a resource for UK physicians about various disorders.  The website contains a helpful page about caregiving for someone with dementia.  Though it is written with physicians in mind (ie, how physicians can be supportive of families), I think the page provides a good summary for laypeople as well.

In addition, I think much of this article applies to caregivers who are NOT dealing with dementia.  Much of the information and advice is generic.

Here’s a link to the full article:

Note that in the UK “caregivers” are referred to as “carers.”  (It’s a superior term in my mind.)
