Dementia can happen to anybody but the risk increases with age. It affects thinking, behaviour and the ability to perform everyday tasks. Some early signs of dementia include progressive and frequent memory loss, confusion, apathy and withdrawal.
Safety within the home is an important factor to consider when caring for a person with dementia. The home environment should be as familiar as possible to the person with dementia. Large orientation signs and using colour contrast can facilitate this.
MobilityHQ’s range of dementia care products aim to promote safety in the home.
