Living with dementia



Visiting is a primary way you can stay connected, now that you are no longer providing day-to-day care. You may feel that you want to continue life-long routines and make visits around these activities, such as sharing a meal together. Visits can be more social and you can join in a group activity such as a musical event. Visits can also be more personal and you can enjoy quiet times alone, reading or reminiscing. Visits from other family members, such as grandchildren, can help the person feel connected. The main objective is to make the time together as meaningful as possible.
