If your loved one has dementia, you will notice changes in their behaviour. Caregivers like yourself may find it difficult to cope with these challenges.
You and your loved one can get support so that your loved one is engaged with meaningful activities at home and in the community. There are also services for caregivers to get help, such as behavioural management for their loved ones, and respite care so that caregivers can take a break.

You can locate the service providers nearest to your home using the
