I have and do work with people looking after a partner or relative who has dementia. I therefore, understand the pressure and stress associated with caring for someone every day and night. Dementia presents with a range of symptoms and behaviours from mild to severe.
I am glad to be able to give carers a break by spending one to one time with their partner or relative. This allows them to do something for themselves unhindered, knowing their relative is in safe hands. I build a relationship with both parties, and like to find out what interests may be appropriate to try and inspire the person being cared for.
Above all it is about building trust with the person being cared for, and their carer.
