Giving Medicines

Useful tips to help your family member take their medicines correctly and regularly

Dementia may affect your family member’s memory, mood and behaviour. You may find that your family member may not want to take their medicines.

If your family member has been able to look after their own medicines without help, for many years:

  • they may not want to ask for your help.
  • they may get angry with you for trying to help them with their medicines.
  • they may know they are making mistakes with their medicines but try to hide these mistakes.
  • they may forget what some or all of their medicines are for.
