If you are a family member or friend caring for a person with dementia, you are at the right place.
Maybe you find yourself dealing with resistance, stress or aggressive behaviour from the person.
Perhaps you are struggling with what you should do to help or you are looking for better and more effective ways to create more peace for the person AND yourself.
When dementia affects your life and relationships with changing situations, it often causes many different worries and challenges.
The emotions, including grief and loss, may become overwhelming. Often, the practical issues and challenges require so much attention that finding a way to handle all the different emotions is not a priority.
Aggression, anxiety and resisting help are some of the “difficult” behaviours that may be displayed by those with dementia. You may have struggled in your attempts to change these behaviours. You may wonder what else you could do after trying almost everything with minimal results. This can lead to feelings of helplessness, powerlessness, disconnection, frustration and guilt.
You may start to ponder whether there is anything out there that can actually help (other than sedative medications).
Fortunately, in the last decade, researchers have gained many new insights into how the brain works and how a damaged brain processes stimuli. Plus, over time, effective strategies have been developed, also known as best-practices.
These insights provide us with a much better understanding of why certain behaviours occur and, more importantly, what is needed to improve wellbeing.
Understanding the experience of dementia, what happens in the brain and how the brain reacts to the environment enables us to make sense of the behaviors and create strategies that work. These provide you with a sense of control and more room for you to build a better quality of life for yourself.
Powerful strategies have been developed to help you construct an inner peace, even in the midst of a storm, and to help you recharge and have more energy.
