Daily Dementia Dose: Do you feel like you are losing hope?

minute/s remaining

That is completely normal.

I received a message from a random person and she said that I am just giving hope.

We have to have hope. You have to have something to look forward to.

If there’s hope in the future, then there’s power in the present.

We need to provide hope not only for our patients but also for everybody.

I know that we have no cure for dementia, but until there is no cure, there is care. You can still care for your loved ones.

You can continue to take care of them.

My father during his last days, all he cared about was his daughter (my sister) stroking his hair, and touching his hand. That’s what he wanted.

That’s what we really need to give to our loved ones and to our patients.

We need to care for them.
