If your loved one suffers from dementia, you already know how consuming it is to constantly worry about their well-being. The checklist grows exponentially as you watch one’s ability to monitor their own needs wane. During the winter months, as temperatures drop, you may notice that their ability to self-monitor body temperature is impaired. Perhaps you witness forgetfulness around wearing a warm coat or appropriate shoes. Slippery steps or streets can lead to the risk of falls. Also, insufficient clothing can increase the risk of hypothermia.
