Because of dementia, someone becomes increasingly dependent on his environment and (professional) care. Making decisions is becoming less and less successful.
That is why it is important to think about the future on time. Who is allowed to arrange finances and make decisions about care? Which support should be arranged?
Arrange admission to a nursing home
There comes a time when living at home is no more. Especially if you or your family member with dementia needs care and support 24 hours a day. Admission to a nursing home is a good solution, but also a difficult decision. There is a lot of administration involved in arranging admission to a nursing home. Therefore start on time with the collection of information about application procedures, conditions and waiting lists of nursing homes.
When you or your family member with dementia is in an advanced stage, you need support or intensive care.
