Along with cognitive decline, dementia is characterised by changes in emotional control, social behaviour and physical performance.1 Individuals living with dementia often require assistance with their activities of daily living as dementia progresses.2 Requirements for higher levels of care result in more individuals with dementia living in residential aged care facilities (RACFs); up to 52% of all individuals living in RACFs have a diagnosis of dementia.
