Dementia: ‘You Don’t Know What You’re Doing’

I wanted to make clear that my earlier post was not a personal attack on any individual.

My point is that the procedures that are being adhered to make no sense.

Dementia is viewed as a progressive condition.

There is no treatment available for vascular dementia in this country.

Maureen has been discharged from the Memory Service as further testing is deemed pointless.

It has already been established that Maureen lacks capacity in terms of her social welfare.

Therefore why is any further assessment necessary?

All yesterday achieved was sleep disturbance and  further distress!

About Remember Me

I am a retired adult educator. My wife had a stroke in February 2014 and now has mixed dementia. Her recovery from stroke has been exceptional apart from 50% loss of peripheral vision and vascular damage. 'Dharma For Dementia' is my approach to being Maureem's Care Partner: it aims to end the suffering of 'Prescribed Disengagement' (Swaffer) .
