What to expect when caring for someone with dementia

Hi lqueenlaura,

Here’s a popular line of thinking among dementia-care family members: “Nobody can do it as well as I can.” Especially if you live with the person you’re caring for, it’s probably true that no one else knows him or her as well as you do. This allows you to provide high quality-care that’s attentive to likes and dislikes and attuned to reading moods — plus you’ve probably established a comfortable rhythm for the day. The catch is this: You’ll need more and more help as time passes; you can’t do it all alone.
