Breaking Down the Barriers for People Living With Dementia
Dementia Home Care & Senior Support, Sunshine Coast
Remember that small, everyday acts of support, goodwill and understanding can make a huge difference in the lives of people living with dementia, as well as their families, carers and friends, and allow them to continue to engage in the activities that are important to them. No one should ever feel isolated or that they are not supported, particularly when caring for someone living with dementia.
The recent Aged Care Royal Commission has found that dementia affects at least 50 per cent of the 200,000 people living in residential aged care homes in Australia, and that they are frequently inappropriately prescribed psychotropic medication, often as a form of chemical restraint. The study confirms that most – if not all – behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD), including distressing symptoms such as agitation and aggression, abnormal motor behaviour, anxiety, delusions, hallucinations and disinhibition, can be most effectively supported by non-pharmacological interventions.
