Carer support

As dementia progresses, the role of the carer becomes greater, with increased levels of supervision, support and surrogate decision-making required of the carer for the person living with dementia.[1]

Monitor carer stress and burden as the disease progresses and encourage carers to access carer support and education groups early.
