Effects of Lying to a Dementia Patient

ETHICS VIDEO:

That told us very little. As The patient progresses in the disease his lack of awareness negates the necessity to tell lies because they are not as distressed . I don't see this being a carryover problem into other areas of the caregivers life.

Welcome

This site was inspired by my Mom’s autoimmune dementia.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chaffe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. With a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia appearing on the internet every 7 minutes, the site’s focus on the best information has been a help to many over the past 15 years. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
