THE EMOTIONAL NEEDS
It is important for families and loved ones to know that every individual has emotional needs that are frequently misunderstood in the advanced stage of dementia. While many individuals may not be able to speak or may exhibit behaviors that are not understood, support may be offered that will give them great comfort. Frequently, individuals no longer recognize the family members, which may create a high level of discomfort for the family member attempting to engage the patient. Family members, loved ones do not need to talk a lot, simply being there, touching the patient’s hand or shoulder creates a presence and communicates caring.
