Dementia Australia has compiled several resources for all those affected by dementia, including self-care tips for those caring for a loved one or those who provide care for clients living with dementia.
These tips include:
- Seek out emotional support
- Take time out for things you love
- Talk to friends and family regularly about the type of support you need
You can find a complete list of those tips here.
With almost 1.6 million Australians involved in the care of those living with dementia, there needs to be a greater emphasis on providing support for those who care for those with the disease.
If you know someone who provides care for a person living with dementia, we encourage you to share the above tips with them.
