Excerpt from -- Communicating in Alzheimer's World

Alzheimer's Front Row

Excerpt from -- Communicating in Alzheimer's World


Welcome to Alzheimer's World.

Excerpt from -- Communicating in Alzheimer's World | Alzheimer's Front Row

Don't be afraid or reluctant to step into this new and very different world.

In Alzheimer's World, reality takes on a different shape.

Reality in Alzheimer's World is a reflection of what the person living with Alzheimer's thinks and believes. It is this reality that you must focus on, not the way YOU think things are, or should be.

Acceptance.

I feel confident when I say this -- you won't be able to convince a person who is deeply forgetful that they are wrong, and you won't be able to convince them that your reality is the true reality. They can't remember like you or me, so they really cannot comprehend your point of view.

When you do this you are asking the person who is deeply forgetful to come back into your world. They cannot do this.
