10 tips for supporting someone with dementia

Sometimes relatives and friends can find it hard to know what to say if they are visiting a person with dementia – either in their own home or in a care home.

This handy booklet from HammondCare is free to access and easy to read: it sets out  10 tips for supporting someone with dementia, and is aimed at family and friends who want to continue to support and visit a person with dementia.

It includes suggestions such as ‘Start by listening’, ‘Don’t rush to give advice’, and suggestions for activities to do together.
