How to Help a Person with Dementia Who has Pain

#Pain #Family carer

The information in this helpsheet provides family and community with tips to recognise and understand pain, and includes some ideas that can help.

Pain can change the way a person behaves, their body and their spirit. It's sometimes hard to know if a family member with dementia has pain because they might not want to talk about it, not want to appear weak, or they cannot talk about it.
