Welcome to Mindful Monday! Today Shannon Braun, director of ERS' Center for Memory Support and Inclusion, tells us about the late stage of dementia, in the last of a three-part series.
In this stage, a person has a limited ability to communicate because of the ongoing loss of language that happens throughout the three stages of dementia.
People in the late stage of their dementia journey require daily supervision because of poor safety awareness and a high risk of wandering. In this stage, they need help with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing and grooming, and no longer can live independently.
