LIVING with Dementia

Harry Urban on active/passive response to Dementia.

Excerpt from Harry Urban’s blog at :

Living with dementia and having dementia are two different things.

When you are LIVING with dementia
you are actively trying to find ways to overcome the obstacles that get in your way.
You are trying to squeeze every ounce of enjoyment out of your life.

Having dementia may be a more passive way with dealing with dementia.
You may rely on medication to find happiness.

Either approach is acceptable and totally depends on the individual.

I am living with dementia and
always seeking ways to avoid the pitfalls
and when I stumble I may need help
but it is up to me to get up.
