Clicking on the picture above will take you to HiRes copy of this digital Painting at my Flickr Acct.  From there, if you click on picture, you can see greater detail. >> .


These are Links i find myself repeatedly sharing
when folks have questions about how “dementia” works.
Teepa Snow is one of the best teachers i know for making dementia symptoms easier to understand,
so many of these Links are from her archives.


i embedded the first few videos, and the last few.  But if i embed all of them the page will be very long.  So i just attached Links for each major type of dementia.
