It is hard for me to write about the hardships of dementia
when the coronavirus is overshadowing with its tragedies.
We will overcome the Covid 19 with a vaccine and a cure,
but for us living with dementia, that is still a pipe dream.
Through the quarantine we are learning about video conferencing and being connected while being isolated.
We are finding out how to stay connected with our loved ones when we can’t be with them.
Now we need to ensure all care facilities are set up with video conferencing capabilities
without the complaints I’ve heard over the years.
Nurses, doctors, first responders and so many others put their lives on the line to care for coronavirus
so why can’t we learn from them and do the same for people living with dementia.
No protective equipment is necessary, and you can’t catch dementia from us.
You may find out that the hug you give us will give you a warm feeling in your heart.
