Kindness for carers

Serena was struck by the kindness shown by carers to people with dementia; “They know that some questions require a gentle and even slightly ‘creative’ response rather than a truth that would be misunderstood or cause pain” she told me.

She also shared a link to a wonderful article, featuring community member insights and curated by a member of her team which offers advice for someone worried about bending the truth to avoid unnecessary distress for a person with dementia.
