Excursions and trips out can be a great experience for those with dementia – helping to make them active and engage them in new environments. However, not everyone is as patient as you, and it can be uncomfortable when someone who doesn't understand dementia encounters someone with it.
The Dementia Patience Cards Refill Pack include 50 cards as a refill for the Dementia Patience Cards and the Dementia Patience Cards for Carers, helping you ensure that you have as many cards as you may need for your day out.
It can be incredibly undignified to have to explain dementia to someone in front of someone with dementia. It can reduce their confidence and make them less willing to go on trips in the future.
The cards enable you and those with dementia to give an upfront explanation of the condition and the situation before issues arise, helping them to maintain their dignity and get the support they need from others around them.
Reduces Stressful Situations
Individuals such as waiters may not be as patient with those with dementia as they may need, which can lead to stressful and awkward situations. The patience cards help to reduce the chance of these situations occurring, helping you and your dependent enjoy your day out.
Providing a clear description of dementia before any conversation starts enables both parties to have a greater level of understanding, facilitating communication and helping everyone have a better experience.
50 Cards for Refill
If you find that the patient cards are great for you, you may need to keep a steady supply of them ready for a day out. The refill pack is available for both the carer's cards and for the individual's cards, helping you ensure both fronts are covered effectively.
