social, health, political imagery through the lens of George J Huba PhD © 2012-2017

Have dementia? I do. Care for someone with dementia? I used to. Have a family member with dementia? I used to.

There are many things that you can do to help yourself (and others you meet along the way). Among others, stop worrying about appearing dumb or disabled; if you have a problem ask someone to help you. Practice what you should do in various situations. Try to be empathic (or at least aware). Learn to be patient and take your turn even if you want to break into a conversation or a line because you might forget what you want to say or you think no one is listening to you. Keep trying to learn new things or ways of behaving or ways of thinking. Respect others. And focus on enjoying your life in a way that does not take away from another’s enjoyment of life.
