What does the middle stage of dementia look like?
The middle stage of dementia can be the most difficult stage for the care partner. This stage can include behaviours like wandering, suspicions, resistance to care. It will require the care partner to supervise the person living with dementia 24/7 due to the fact that the person is not safe being left alone. This stage is where the care partner may consider community supports like home care, day programs, and bathing support. It is also a time where the care partner may need to reach out to others in order to gain support and strategies for the many changes that are occurring at this time.
