Tip #4: “Consistent Staffing”
Think of yourself in a new and unfamiliar situation, surrounded by unfamiliar faces. Imagine this happens almost every day. It feels like starting out in a new high school over and over again. Who are all these other people? How will I remember their names? There are so many strangers-what do they really know about me? Now, imagine you also have dementia.
