When you have a loved one with dementia, it can be difficult to find dementia care that approaches dementia as a holistic issue. As a family member, you realize that the decline in cognitive functioning that is a hallmark of dementia has a whole-life impact on your loved one. You can see how dementia is more than memory-loss or forgetfulness. It can impact mood, affect, appetite, the ability to get your loved one exercising, social interactions, and even the ability to find out when your loved one is not feeling well. Because dementia is a disease that can impact a person’s entire life, to work with dementia patients, you need a healthcare provider that is willing to take a holistic approach.
