Ideas about work accommodation

  • Try to understand what may be triggering Naresh’s abrupt behaviour with customers and co-workers. Explore ways of helping him cope with or avoid these triggers.
  • Assess not only how dementia is hampering his job performance, but also how it isn’t. Consider his remaining strengths, not just his deficits.
  • Learn more about dementia by using the resources on this website or talk to your local Alzheimer Society.
  • If Naresh’s co-workers know about his condition, provide myth-busting information to help them overcome their preconceptions about dementia. Address any concerns they have about how working alongside Naresh will impact them. Consider contacting your local Alzheimer Society for a presentation at work.
  • Encourage Naresh to contact the local Alzheimer Society for information about First Link®, a program that connects people with dementia with a variety of information and support within their own communities.
