Sight, perception and hallucinations in Dementia
Useful fact sheet to download.
Some people with dementia may encounter problems with their sight – in some cases, this includes having hallucinations.
The factsheet below looks at some of the difficulties and mistakes this can cause, and suggests ways of providing support for the person. Understanding the problems they may face and giving appropriate help, support and reassurance can help people living with dementia to feel safe. This is especially important at a time when the way they perceive the world around them may be changing.
If you need any sensory support, our Sensory Service can help.
