My mother's death from complete organ failure due to dementia is too recent. I am saving this link to watch when I can do so less emotionally than now.

I know what you mean. I saw this video while mom was still with us and it was hard to watch then. I just came across it again, now 2 months since dementia took our mom. I watched a few minutes. Too emotional to see now. Still so hard to comprehend how an 89 year old in good health, is now gone due to dementia. As difficult as it was to watch/care for her, and I'm glad she is in a better place… I miss her so much. More than I imagined. I'm so sorry for the loss of your loved one to this cruel disease.

I agree!!! She got the eyes right—the look of fear & being lost. Way too close to the truth. Tis a half box (or more ) of tissues.

Thank you for this portrayal of a person with dementia. I have recently been diagnosed with FTD and it helps to know what I might experience in the coming years. God is with me so that’s all that matters.
