People with dementia can often live happily and independently with the right support. Alzheimer's Disease is the most common form of dementia and people with Alzheimer's Disease benefit from having the same CAREGiver for each visit, being encouraged to do as much as they can for themselves and staying active.
Reassurance and a happy, familiar face can make a world of difference.
