60,000 New Zealanders have dementia and that number is expected to almost triple by 2050. As well as affecting the quality of life for those affected by dementia, it also has a huge impact on their family and loved ones.
What they can do, remember and understand can change from day to day and with this in mind we’ve searched the world to put together a product range that will help people with the condition continue to do everyday tasks and make life easier for those caring for them.
Dementia has the potential to affect a person’s physical ability and also their mental alertness. Keeping safe is critical, especially in environments where they spend a great deal of time such as in their homes and to also ensure that they have a sense of security. Caring for someone with dementia can offer many rewards, but it can also be challenging at times, especially when you want your loved one to stay in their own home for as long as possible. The products we have selected are designed to help people carry out everyday tasks and also ensure that they are kept as safe as possible.
