Hot weather advice

Advice on “How to support somebody living with dementia in hot weather” has been produced online by Alzheimer’s Society.  It focuses mainly on how to prevent dehydration by making drinks more accessible and by leaving prompts and reminders, among other things, but also gives tips to help people with dementia stay cool when it’s hot.  In further online advice, the Society has posted “10 ways to make dressing easier for people with dementia”.  It includes using signs on furniture and laying out a full outfit against a plain background.
