Everyone (and their caregivers) probably has different expectations about what it means to live well with dementia. For long as possible and as long as it is safe, your caregivers should assist you to live well in the way that you wish.

Be reasonable. Try to be independent. Be realistic about the time of others and cost. Be consistent with how much energy you have. BE SAFE. Follow your doctor’s recommendations and your caregivers.

You can do some (or maybe all if you have busy life and lots of energy) of the things shown in the mind model (mind map) below.
