PWD Perspective Facebook account has been deleted by Facebook.  So I am now posting PWD Perspective updates on my personal Truthful Kindness account.  (Neither “group” nor “page” structure meets my needs.)  Index for Dec 2014 is now below on page.

* Admin issues: SHARE dementia awareness thru buttons below. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the form of comments, but please filter your comments with truthful loving kindness to all concerned.

Persons With Dementia (PWD) are experts at many aspects of dementia issues.  “PWD Perspective” was set up for us as PWD to share our perspective of dementia issues with the public.   Thank you for caring enough to want to learn about PWD issues in order to better communicate and relate to your loved one.  If an instructor, thank you for your eagerness to hear about dementia issues from the patients themselves, in order to better teach others dementia-oriented communication/relationship techniques. You are encouraged to comment, and are very much appreciated.
