What works for us

Spending time with someone who has dementia can make you feel a whole range of emotions. Somedays it might be easy and other days it could be harder.  There are no rules that say what you should do or how you should act. Everybody who has dementia is different, and their families help them in different ways.

The ideas on these pages all come from young people who have a parent, grandparent, relative or friend with dementia. Some of them might work for you, too.
