Advanced stages of dementia
Dementia is a progressive condition which results in the deterioration of memory, cognitive function and, eventually, may impair speech, co-ordination, hearing, mobility and continence. In the advanced stages of dementia you, your partner or loved one will require full-time care.
Despite these challenges it is perfectly possible for a person in the advanced stages of dementia and their family to maintain a calm and stress-free daily life if they have benefited from a person-centric dementia care plan, established soon after diagnosis.
Planning for the advanced and final stages of dementia at an early stage, with the full involvement and understanding of the individual who has received the diagnosis, is essential if their personal wellbeing is to be preserved into the final stages of the condition.
