Sample text

Please don’t ask me complicated questions or ask me to make complex choices. Keep things simple when you speak to me. Speak clearly. Get my attention before you speak, and give me extra time to process your words. Please don’t whisper to other people in front of me. It might make me feel suspicious and threatened. I might think you are saying nasty things about me. And use a calm tone of voice. I feel frightened if you raise your voice. Please don’t come up behind me and speak. That can feel shocking and frightening too.

By painting the wall, the architrave and door the same colour, the door becomes less noticeable. ˚˚ Avoid bold patterned shapes or contrasting colours on the carpet, wallpaper or curtains: these can be “misread” and can confuse the person with dementia.
