    Hi guys I'm new to this so be kind! I'm a volunteer telephone befriender and one of my ladies said something to me yesterday and I wanted to do something about it. She is a person with dementia and has been struggling lately and wanted to know a little bit more about her dementia. I believe she is stage 4. If anyone could comment on things I could tell her and ways to make it easier for her I would really appreciate it! :)

    Hello @Welshgal, welcome to TP. I hope you find this a friendly and supportive place.

    If this lady has a diagnosis of a specific type of dementia it would be useful to detail this along with any specific questions she has so that members may be able to give advice.

    Otherwise, there is a considerable list of Factsheets available and one or more of these might assist you. If you're interested, here's a link to the list
