Editorial note: Yes; my full legal name is “Truthful Loving Kindness”. This project had humble beginnings during a neurology appointment. The learned specialist exclaimed, after reviewing my comprehensive collection of medical reports, test results, and copies of lab work neatly categorized in two 3” binders, “No one with dementia could possibly prepare such complete medical folder”.
Wow. CAPABLE persons cannot possibly have dementia; thanks for the encouragement! In the year since that specialist appointment, I have met many capable Persons With Dementia. The true realization just needs to be announced. “Success” can be anything from garden or craft project, to academic or dementia awareness efforts.
Here is the proof that Persons With Dementia (PWD) can be capable, positive, dynamic, uplifting, motivating REAL People! Thank you to each and every one for sharing your story. If YOU have not yet, but would like to share your story please leave comment.
