Let’s talk about dementia. Despite the fact that dementia mainly affects adults over the age of 65 and the likelihood significantly increases with age, it is NOT a normal part of ageing. Due to its progressive nature, dementia alters the ability to:
– perform normal daily activities
– degenerate one’s memory, behaviour, and thinking skills
Unfortunately, we are seeing this more often with our seniors, but it’s important to learn the facts and remember to continue treating those who have dementia with kindness, dignity, and respect. Always.
