Memory loss and confusion are often the first signs that a loved one has dementia – struggling to find the right words, forgetting an important appointment, or a trip to the shops that takes much longer than normal. However, behavioural changes that typically occur in the mid- stages of the disease can prove the most challenging for people providing care. Milbotix founder Zeke shares a personal story about his great-grandmother, Kath.
“Kath was a gentle and sociable person with a life-long passion for jazz music. However, several years after her dementia diagnosis, she became prone to bouts of aggression which placed tremendous strain on my family.”
