Abstract

Whilst memory loss is a significant feature of dementia, it is important to remember that people experience dementia in very unique and individual ways. In addition to physical symptoms, people living with dementia can be impacted upon by a range of behavioural and psychological symptoms which are debilitating for the person experiencing them and challenging for those around them, whether in a familial or caring capacity. Behaviour is often misunderstood when it is not considered within the context of a person's individual life history. Following a person-centred approach is therefore an essential part of appreciating someone's identity and identifying the underlying reason for the behaviour.
