Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
A person who is aware of losing some mental and functional abilities
may be depressed or frightened and may feel like a burden to those who take
care of him or her. Helping the person stay active and involved may make it
easier for both of you. Take advantage of the person's remaining abilities for
as long as possible.
It is important to give a person with
dementia tasks and activities that occupy him or her
without pushing too much.
