When receiving a diagnosis of Dementia, it can have a wide ranging impact to the individual and their loved ones. Caregiving for someone with a diagnosis of Dementia can be very challenging. Often times a family member is the one providing care, and this places stress on the caregiver. Providing care to a family member, can result in significant burden, which can have a physical, medical and psychological impacts. As such, as the individual that has Dementia deteriorates- they often require specialized care so that they can stay safely in their home.
