Later stages of dementia
Everyone with dementia is different
The changes in your brain will be happening at a different rate and along a different path to other people with dementia.
Things can continue to change to a point where some people with dementia will require full care. Whether this care is provided at home or in a residential care facility will depend on you, your carer, your family and your situation.
