MAKE THE HOME DEMENTIA FRIENDLY

People with dementia are more likely to stay at home surrounded by familiar faces and cherished possessions. But, it is important to take the time to make the home dementia-friendly, as Dr Warner states that the home can be full of hazards. “When I am diagnosing someone I will always try and see them in their home ''. He says that one of the reasons he does that is to “spot any obvious environmental hazards, but also so I can look in their fridge and make sure they are eating properly.”

Dr Warner further explains that “if you put a symbol of a toilet on the toilet door, that would help to guide them to the toilet”. Or “modify your oven so someone with dementia can’t turn it on and then leave it on accidentally.” He also mentions devices that can “prompt people to take their medication.”
