    Understanding..care and compassion to the sufferer and the family...Helping in any and every way that is warranted...sometimes means taking care of the sufferer so that the family/nearest and dearest who are also sufferers of this awful condition..can have a bit of time out and know that they`re loved one is in good hands..(Individualized care...liase with the family and find out what they require of the care too)...Patience is vital as is feeding/helping the patient to express  themselves as best as they can..hygiene..understanding are just a few on the list!!...Treat the individual as you would wish you and yours to be treated..it all adds up to a better quality of life!
