I Have Alzheimer’s or Another Dementia
Going through day-to-day activities :
Welcome Charles. I was told I had dementia in 2010. I live alone and do not have family close by, and my two very close friends abandoned me. Thus I am reluctant to disclose to the public about a diagnosis of dementia. I have learned that it is a good idea for me to make my own decisions and to make my own plans for myself.
From my readings on this board, I find that many family members are clueless about how PWDs (persons with dementia) feel and what our needs are. There seems to be quite a lot of conflict and resulting distress for the PWD. Other members may have more input. Can you tell us how you are dealing with your own family members?
