Dementia: A Carer’s Story

A story familiar to all Care Partners:


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) .

    Thanks for sharing

    I realise with both my husband and mother they were diagnosed well done the track. This was mainly because I knew nothing about Alzheimer’s and just thought it was old age! I gradually did more and more for them – I was the enabler. I don’t think either of them had any real understanding of the disease when they were finally diagnosed.

      Maureen’s diagnosis should have been made earlier. Unfortunately, she was in denial and there were lots of other things going on in our lives that would have made diagnosisi difficult.
