Overview

When it comes to families living with a person with dementia, in addition to the constant supervision and daily task fulfilment for the person with dementia who slowly would be losing their capabilities to take care of themselves, families may also find it difficult to distinguish the symptoms from the person. For instance, a person with dementia may start behaving aggressively when they hadn’t been aggressive their whole lives, or act clear one day and confused the other. This can be confusing and frustrating to deal with for the caregivers. The counsellor can pitch in and tell them that it is the disease, and not the person, making it easier to empathize and thus take care of the person with dementia. They may have feelings of guilt, anger, frustration when having to act as a constant caregiver that they may not be comfortable expressing to other family members. A counsellor can then act as a safe space for family members to express their genuine emotions. Counselling can also be useful for the person with dementia in early stages to help them handle any negative emotions that come as a result of feeling a loss of control over their life. In more progressive dementia with enough cognitive capability sustained, counselling can still help reduce behavioural issues of the person.

Is online counselling effective?

There has been no significant difference in the effectiveness of online and in-person counselling in treating mental health issues. 

What are the benefits of online counselling?

It can be a good alternative to in-person counselling for remote areas. It can also be convenient to schedule a session according to a time that suits best without needing extra travel time and is good for accessibility for those with physical limitations such as people with more progressive dementia.
