I would like to know from all the caregivers here if they can define the word dementia.I see many of us are having a hard time with our parents grandparents and such.Having read many comments from people reguarding caring for a parent it seems we are expecting that person to be playing with a full deck. Me included.I always thought when a person with Dementia got further into the disease that they no longer were able to do the everyday things they did in the past. I have also come to beleave that not everything they say or do is meaning to be hurtful. They have lost the ability to cope. Hanging on to threads of things that are familar.
