Safety and Wellness
Over time, the symptoms of dementia or other related diseases will worsen. Judgement, sense of time and place, behavior, physical ability and senses can be impacted by the progression of these diseases.
Improving safety can prevent injuries and help a person living with dementia feel at ease and maintain their independence longer.
Talk with your doctor about options for occupational therapy evaluation, a driving evaluation or a home safety assessment. Consider a medical alert system, watches with GPS tracking, motion-sensor alarms or video monitoring system to help monitor your loved one with dementia.
