To recognize World Alzheimer’s Awareness Month in September, CRE Salamanca created a highly visual infographic that captures the nature of repetitive symptoms and their impact on the lives of people living with dementia. Repetitive symptoms are often misunderstood and create frustration and exhaustion for clients and their family/professional caregivers. It is important to remember that people with dementia cannot control their symptoms. #Alzheimer'sDementiaCaregiving
Share this pix with those who have family or friends affected by Alzheimers or dementia. This information is also ideal for caregivers who may not have had training on how to communicate more effectively with those suffering from Alzheimers or dementia.
