Caring for Someone with Dementia

Think of a time you received a sincere and thoughtful compliment from someone you know…

Or maybe even a complete stranger.

How did it make you feel?


It’s amazing when you think about it...

How just a few words expressed in a sincere way can make you feel like you’re walking on sunshine.

It’s a feeling that can last for days, months, and sometimes even years, which begs the question...

How can something so seemingly small have such a profound impact on people?

Here’s how it works…

When you receive a sincere compliment, your brain responds by releasing the feel-good hormone, dopamine…

Which makes you feel happier.

And it doesn’t stop there!

You get the same mood boost when you’re the giver.

When it comes to caring for someone living with dementia, David Troxel, author of The Best Friends Approach to Dementia Care shares…

“A compliment grounded in your knowledge of the person’s life story and achievements will almost always bring a smile. They understand kindness and affection, even when language falls short.”

It's also a great way to turn a negatively charged interaction into something more manageable.

So, don’t wait another minute…

Think about something you truly respect or appreciate about someone.

Keep it sincere and specific...

And tell them what you think.

Also, don't be afraid to compliment a stranger...your words might be exactly what they need to hear.
