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

The experience of time when you have dementia is quite different from the period before you had dementia.

For me, one of the larger changes that occurred is the experience of time, both in the short term (during a single day) and in weeks, months, and years. Compressed yes. Also VERY NONLINEAR.

Here are a few suggested names I have come up with for the time zone in which many persons with dementia live.

There are two big problems in this naming process.

First, there are many different experiences of time so not all persons with dementia are “synchronized.”

Second, persons with dementia can live in more than one time zone simultaneously. I am a good example of that. I think of this time zone shifting as being in a science fiction novel going through alternate universes in a time machine. Dr. Who on dementia.

Never one to walk away from a challenge …
