But in dementia, there is a progressive worsening which affects day-to-day activities. So, with dementia, the person faces problems which are a combination of above-mentioned activities. Dementia is a syndrome associated with many diseases and is not a disease on its own.

Dear Rajiv,
It is in our culture, to keep the elderly persons at home and care for them till the end. This person needs nursing care also which your family members alone can not do. So, it is better to keep her at home and keep a part time or full time nursing assistant, hired from some voluntary agency. If your house is, not that convenient or if you have other commitments, you have to shift her to a nursing home after counselling all relevant relatives.

Dear Ashok,
i can understand the problem of living with a mother who is dementing. Dementia causes sleep problems. A person with dementia may sleep during the day and not at night. But giving sleeping tablets cause problems of falls. Any fall can cause fracture of hip joint at postmenopausal age. So it is better to avoid sedatives.
