What if they have a stroke tomorrow and cannot speak, or write, or remember.It is for every great-grandparent, grandparent, parent, child, niece, nephew, grand-child, great grand-child, aunts and uncles and cousins- for every single family.And it is for every single nurse caring for the aged, whether you are the boss, the RN, the AIN or PCA, the bus driver, kitchen hand or cleaning lady....no matter what your job. It is to provide you all with some understanding of those affected by memory loss / dementia and who cannot communicate normally with you.I want to give you some insight into some behavioural changes that may occur as a result of memory loss or dementia and to offer some tips for you to help you deal with the process- the illness.
