Why It’s Better for Your Caregiver to be a Certified Dementia Care Practitioner

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), around 10 million new cases of dementia are diagnosed every year. It’s a progressive disease that affects the cognitive functions of an adult. It is primarily seen in older adults aged 65 and above. As the disease progresses, the adult would require assistance with many of their daily living activities, including mobility, grooming, bathing, meal prepping, medication reminders, shopping, etc.

In many scenarios, the family may need additional help of a home caregiver to handle the changing needs of their loved one. It is always a good idea to work with a caregiver who is a Certified Dementia Care Practitioner. It equips the caregiver with a better understanding of the signs and stages of dementia, the latest treatments available, awareness about the latest research in the field of dementia and Alzheimers, understanding the behavioral changes and preparing the skill sets required to handle the changing physical and mental needs of a dementia patient.
