What are the Stages of Dementia?

Spouses and family members of people with dementia are often eager to know what stage their loved one is currently in and how best to work with and relate to the person in these phases.

Early Stage of Dementia

Early dementia correlates with the loss of adult learning. The last skills we learned as adults will be the first things that become challenging if we have dementia. Trouble with thinking and making decisions may result in problems with driving safely, managing money, and keeping things organized. However, there are many helpful resources out there for people who have just been diagnosed.

The Middle Stage

The middle phase of dementia corresponds to the loss of adolescent learning. People in this stage begin to not recognize that they are forgetting, so they can be confused and frustrated at times. Giving your loved one a structured environment at a senior living community will help them flourish as they engage in opportunities shaped to their needs.


Later Stages of Dementia

In the later stages of dementia, the person is experiencing the loss of childhood learning. They may not remember how things work exactly. They may not recognize or misuse objects, which can lead to confusion and frustration. Creating a space that is comfortable and calming will help with anxiety.
