Memory and Recognition Links

.Tru here.

By middle-stages, Memory and Recognition are huge issues with most types of dementia.
These are my favorite Links for greater insight on symptoms and strategies regarding Memory and Recognition.
Thanks to Barry Pankhurst, George Huba PhD, Janice Crich, Paulan Gordon, retired doctor Jennifer Bute, Jim Pfefferkorn, Laurie Scherrer, Michelle Montgomery, Paul Hitchmough, Peter Berry, Shelagh Robinson, Susan Suchan, Tommy Dunne, Wendy Mitchell and … (withOUT dementia) Dr. Elaine Eshbaugh and teacher Teepa Snow.


Listed Links on MEMORY first, then RECOGNIZING family and friends in the next section.
