Dementia and Memory changes (bitesize)

 

What I liked about this Dementia Help Sheet (link below): 

  • The key sentence I like is this direct quote: 

‘A person with dementia, however, may lose the car keys and then forget what they are used for.’ 

  • I think this encapsulates what memory changes mean! 

 

Picture credit:

* This amazing picture was taken by Lee Jeffries.  Please google him, google his work and be amazed (No I do not know him nor have any links with him, nor with Google come to think of it).

 

Key points I extracted from this Help Sheet: 

  • Do not forget they will forget. Forget and you become one of them! This is because they are one of us...
  • They will forget but not everything (they will show the pictures of their son naked when he was 3 years old- They might have forgotten that you are him). 
  • Give them a verbal or visual crutch, to help them remember. 
  • Not remembering means not being able to process. 
  • Drink more means forget more (maybe good for you, less so for your loved one). 
  • Losing brain connections does not preclude from making new ones. 
  • People remember better when they are not stressed. 

 

What I do: 

  • I do not get uptight about it.  My memory is shocking, and I do not have Dementia.  I am happy to give them a break!

  • I work for CPR Global Tech and, for personal reasons, like many people, I have had to learn a lot about dementia the hard way.  As there is a natural forum on our website, it makes sense for me to share info here.
