4 thoughts on “Dementia: Time To Tell The Truth

  1. OMG. This is THE LAST thing we need! Someone with dementia telling the world that people living with dementia are raving lunatics who are biting, kicking, screaming, hallucinating and “wandering” all over the place like zombies. These behaviours need to be understood for what they are: normal human responses to fear, perceived threats, and unmet needs. Sigh. Sometimes I just want to give up.

    1. I have to admit I hadn’t seen it from that perspective. My intention is to share the positives in our lives together rather than focus on the challenges. Maureen can be AMAZING and I hope to be allowed to share video evidence of her achievements.

      1. Did you not hear the list of truths? “They don’t tell you about the hallucinations…” the kicking, the biting, the screaming, the punching…. I don’t know where Normms gets his information, but I hear about that stuff ALL THE TIME. We need to hear more positives imho. But hey, maybe it’s just me.
