Pain in dementia

Overview

People with dementia may express their pain differently to people who don't have dementia as they can have difficulty telling others they are in pain or where the pain is located. 

We've put together a list of some of the signs you can look out for which may indicate that someone with dementia is in pain, as well as advice on ways you can support someone who is experiencing pain. 

Check out our information sheet below. To talk to someone about dementia, call our 24 Hour Dementia Helpline.
