Neither the person with dementia (PWD) or the care partners have chosen to be in the role they are now in. The question that must be asked is: What can we do do minimize the collateral damage that can so easily occur in both parties. My Mom and Dad both had dementia. I spend many hours a day advocating for both the PWD and care partners. I understand both roles.
Let's join our collective efforts to develop ways that both the PWD and care partners can have better quality of life. One of my passions is finding ways to lower the high percentage of families that disintegrate as a result of a loved one having dementia. We can start by making comments about the things that we feel will make quality of life better for both parties. As you make your comments, please be respectful of others.
