November 17, 2020 – The show today is full of information you will need to think about and address if someone you are caring for has a dementia disease. Short term memory loss starts as the 1st symptom when a person has Alzheimer’s, and with that is the loss of passwords for accounts, lost medications, account numbers for important issues such as bank accounts and so forth. It is important to have open conversations early on, so that the person with the diagnosis feels supported and secure. If this process isn’t addressed in the early stages, it becomes a point of strong contention later. Suspicion and fear will move in quickly. I have a lot to share with you today that may help.
