Hi Reddit, IamA Senior Care Assistant for people with Dementia AMA!
Hi Reddit, I saw Seth Rogen's speech on /r/videos and thought some of you may enjoy an AMA with someone who works with Dementia patients.
I'm a Senior Care Assistant for people with all forms of Dementia. This means I am responsible for their care whilst they reside in a residential (/and nursing on occasion) setting. I run a team of carers, create care plans, administer medications, refer residents to professional teams when required and assist them to be as independent as possible with their day to day life.

Edit 2: popping out for coffee, keep the questions coming and I'll answer them when I get back...ASAP!
Edit 3: Right I'm back, may have got some chips too. Coffee and chips. I'm going to read through the questions and get on it!
Edit 4: I appreciate all of your questions/interest! Feel free to PM if you have any other questions and I'll try my best to reply but I'm going to call it a night. Thanks!
