Dealing with parents with dementia

Recommended Posts

I read this article about dealing with a parent with dementia, and I thought it could be interesting to discuss it further. While I'm so far lucky enough to not be in the situation of dementia with my own parents, I did see it a lot with my granddad. Just noticing other 'normal' signs of ageing in a parent can be really scary, and it might make your mind wander. I notice my parents' hearing getting a lot worse (which can also be super annoying from a selfish 'child' point of view) and that they get more tired from things they were always able to do. 

Have you dealt with a parent or other close relative with dementia? Is dementia something you worry about for yourself?
