Over 44 million people worldwide have Alzheimer’s disease and approximately 750 000 people in South Africa have the disease. Because of this, there are thousands of caregivers whose lives are affected each day.

The Jura Care Research Team has created the following document titled: ‘Dementia Care At Home,’ hoping to soothe the caregiver with reassuring support, even if for only a brief moment. We have included practical ways of dealing with some of the most common issues that arise with dementia, as well as use of language, understanding aggression and agitation and much more. We also go into detail about the importance in maintaining the well-being of the caregiver and provide suggestions of how to do so.
