Memory Loss In Dementia
Learn to understand how memory works in dementia.
When asked the question; Why do you think people fear dementia? Usually the answer is the same “I’m scared I’ll forget; I’ll forget myself, and my family”. Memory loss can be extremely distressing for the person experiencing it, carers looking after them and their loved ones. Memory loss can be experienced differently by each person living with dementia and therefore sometimes we may see new behaviours from that person — ones we may have never seen before. But there are things we can do to help.
In this course we explore how dementia as a whole affects our memories, why memory disorientation happens and what memory loss looks like for a person living with dementia. We will provide practical tips for memory orientation, and additional communication skills for people who are finding memories distressing.
