Do these format changes make understanding more difficult, or easier for my friends with dementia ??
i dont think dementia has ability to change the CORE nature of our “person”, but can highly influence the “perspective” and PERCEIVED “personality”
This Dementia Trail is a very bumpy trail with tangles of thistles!! As we go, we can sign-post some of the dangers for those following behind, and I think that is what we do with our writings. Coaches & on-lookers can observe and assist, but we on the Dementia Trail itself have a unique perspective. Someday there will be a cure, and we hope the trail will not last long enough to become a well-worn path. But in the meantime … Thank you, Harry, for continuing to shine the light on your path, in order for us to better see our own paths.

Recognize, grieve, … and continue writing.
