Symptoms of dementia

There is no standard dementia experience – everyone’s journey with dementia is different. The medical knowledge base is growing rapidly as new cases of dementia are being treated.

The most common symptoms of dementia are:

  • Progressive and frequent memory loss
  • Confusion
  • Personality and behaviour change
  • Lethargy and withdrawal
  • Loss of ability to perform everyday tasks as before
  • Changes in language function
  • The onset of these symptoms can vary from person to person. Some will start with memory loss, others with personality change, and some will undergo language changes where they cannot find the right words.

If you are caring for someone with Dementia, it is vital that you take a break to care for yourself to minimize care giver burnout. For this reason, WGMC offers temporary care which you can book if you need a break, or are going away, or just want to test the waters.

Our Day care is a wonderful solution to giving you time to attend to task, and peace of mind that you loved is being cared for. Day care will include meals and activities.
