Home > Alzheimer's and Other Dementias: Making the Most of Remaining Abilities
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.
