The feelings that older adult experiences at the onset of dementia and memory loss—namely frustration, anxiety, and fear—are also felt by family members. And just as the person with dementia depends on sources of comfort, security, and consolation, that individual’s family often requires support, as well. Families need to understand what their loved ones are going through and how to add quality to their lives and cope with these changes. And, if families feel they can’t care for them on their own, this is understandable and acceptable. That’s when they may need guidance in selecting an excellent memory support program.
