Relationships

The behaviour of a person living with dementia will gradually change and they may become suspicious, delusional, show aggressive behaviour and forget about their roles as a spouse or parent. Looking after somebody as the illness progresses can put a strain on your relationship and you may start experiencing grief, loss or even anger.

Speak to one of Warwickshire’s Dementia Advisers (telephone - 033 3150 3456) if you are worried that your relationship is being affected by dementia.

You can find some tips around overcoming barriers and making adjustments to the way your relationship develops on the NHS website.
