When an individual with dementia feels they are treated with respect and seen as a person, they will be more cooperative.
This makes your work easier, improves your job satisfaction and your mood. People with dementia will pick up on this and the individual with dementia will cooperate ever more and ever better, which in turn makes you happier.
Now the care snowball is rolling and gets bigger and bigger. So everything you do for someone with dementia comes back to you, even if you think it takes more time.
Believe me, in the long run it will save you time and prevents burnouts. At the same time, you spread happiness into the dementia world, where “The Little Things Are The Big Things”.
Never forget that a wink, a smile, a wave, a hug means the world to care-dependent people.
