Little assistance is needed in the early onset stage of dementia. The patient is comparatively independent and works well with coping techniques like preparing a medication schedule, a to-do list, etc. Only occasionally you may have to give a few reminders. However, security is a must. Caregivers must see to it that the patient is monitored while completing tasks that he/she cannot do safely without assistance. Caregivers at this stage should consider making important decisions with regard to the future. Long-term care plans should be charted out to avoid conflicts and lack of planning later on.
I want to learn about the early onset dementia stage. So that one can stop and prevent the disease from progressing. My mother suffering with dementia, but this is an early case. Detected last week only.
