As dementia has progressed for me, apathy has become a bigger concern as the disease progresses.
Something needs to be done now? Chill dude.
Ask someone else to do something to help you? Happens more and more each day.
Just don’t care about deadlines? Yup.
You need to try to deal with apathy early and later in the course of dementia.
Apathy is a trap.
If you become apathetic, you anger your family and friends and others who can help you.
If you become apathetic, you can miss many important and enjoyable parts of life.
If you become apathetic, you can feel helpless and hopeless.
If you become apathetic, your remaining life can be depressing and limited.
If you become apathetic, your quality of life and that of your family and friends can be adversely affected.
