Talking Dementia: Would I Lie to You?

#Family Carer

We explore the circumstances when a carer or family member might feel it appropriate to lie to someone with dementia.

In this podcast we dissect the term ‘white lies’ and examine how some common care practises are fundamentally lies. The panel provides advice through real life examples, demonstrating how each person with dementia has a unique story and, therefore, how their care must be conducted with a deep understanding of the individual and a team approach between family, friends and care staff.
