Kids Interview People With Dementia

Kids Interview People With Dementia – Alzheimer’s Society UK
Many people are worried about ‘saying the wrong thing’ to someone living with dementia, yet a friendly face or listening ear can make the world of difference. (Video)

Despite the fact that so many people know someone affected, two-thirds of people living with dementia report feeling isolated and lonely.

In this video, kids ask people with dementia profound and funny questions to challenge misconceptions and show that people with dementia, although they have struggles, are still themselves and all people need to do is ask.

Even in the later stages of dementia when having a conversation might become difficult, keeping in touch means a lot. Seeing friends and loved ones brings feelings of happiness and comfort, and the ‘emotional memory’ remains with people living with dementia long after the memory of the visit may have gone.

The UK Alzheimer’s Society works to improve the lives of those with Alzheimer’s and their families.

Kids should be allowed and encouraged to have a conversation with people living with Alzheimer’s.

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.
