Living with dementia is not a visualization we often think about, especially if we have never seen or experienced the ravages of what this debilitating disease can do to a mom or dad, an aunt, or dear friend.
Most people don’t know that dementia begins destroying the brain decades before any cognitive decline is ever noticed. But, the things we do in our life on a daily basis can S-L-O-W the disease progression- OR PREVENT it.
Today’s blog is my experience as I went through Dementia Live to feel what it might be like to live with dementia on a daily basis. While I could never really know how it feels- it is experiences like these that bring us greater awareness and empathy for those who live daily alongside this disease.
