Over 45 million people live with dementia worldwide. For every person with dementia, their family and caregivers face the decision of how best to care for them.
Live and Laugh with Dementia explains how to make life with dementia as positive as possible - to maximize quality of life for all concerned. Just as we need to exercise our body's muscles to keep them strong, so too do we need to exercise our brain to strengthen and maintain our neural capabilities.
By tailoring activities to suit the needs and abilities of dementia patients, families and caregivers will help them to:
Maintain their relationships with others
Maintain their self-identity
Slow the decline of mental function by providing physical and mental stimulation
