Daily Living Aids
It is important for people in the early stages of dementia, whether Alzheimer’s, vascular, Lewy Body or any other form, to maintain an independent and active lifestyle for as long as possible.
 
In the case of personal care, household chores such as cooking, or simply things that a person finds harder to do as the signs of dementia progress, there are many useful products on the market to make coping with dementia easier. They can make life safer too.
 
Many people with early dementia not only want to, but can continue to live independently on their own for a considerable time and the right daily living aids can help them to do this.
 
For example, a person with arthritic hands which makes it hard to pick up and grip things easily will find a ready reacher can help them to do this without bending. Or if they are unsteady on their feet and need to move food and drink safely around the kitchen, a trolley will provide stability and avoid spillage.
 
Carers should do their best to encourage the person with dementia to maintain their independence and if they are confused and struggling with something, see if there is a product aid available that will help them to complete the task more easily.
