As the symptoms of dementia get worse over time, even simple, everyday activities can become difficult. As a caregiver, you can take steps to help manage these changes and make daily tasks easier. Consider these tips:
- Try to keep a routine, such as bathing, dressing, and eating at the same time each day.
- Help the person write down to-do lists, appointments, and events in a notebook or calendar.
- Consider a system or reminders for helping to track regular medications, such as a weekly pillbox or medication dispenser.
