Caring for the Older Persons Living with Dementia,
18 February 2021,
The journey with dementia is a long one, often frought with uncertainties, sadness, grief, despair and sometimes, joy and happiness for most persons with dementia and their caregivers. There is currently no cure for this terrible disease. Dementia robs the persons of their identity and dignity, leaving them like an empty shell towards the end of this long and arduous journey. As a healthcare professional, there is much we can do to improve the quality of lives of our persons living with dementia and their caregivers. The caregivers are our precious partners in this journey and as healthcare professionals, taking care of the caregivers should be a priority.
