Have you ever wondered “Y”? Follow Dementia Grypes
I’m so excited to announce a new series titled “Dementia Grypes”.
So, to first answer the obvious question…. Why did I spell grypes with a “y” instead of the usual “i”?
Because Dementia Grypes is all about the frustrations that not only I have witnessed but also the frustrations that others have conveyed to me.
It will be a forum for me to ask “why” about observations related to dementia.
I am featuring Dementia Grypes on my Instagram page
@compassionate_education It will be a regular video series that will be archived into my highlights on my Instagram.
Grype 1: Why do people speak loudly to persons with dementia? They aren’t deaf. They have dementia!
Grype 2: So, everyone’s an expert! Why do people assume that if someone is forgetful and they are advanced in age that they have dementia? I guess they haven’t heard of pseudo-dementia or ever considered that there may be other factors in play.
Grype 3: Why is it that dementia/Alzheimer’s doesn’t get the same media coverage as other diseases do?
The number of deaths attributed to Alzheimer’s disease alone from 2000-2017 rose by 145%!!
