People with dementia feel happy long after a visit or experience they may have forgotten
Spending time with loved ones with dementia is important even after they fail to recognise the faces of friends and family, a dementia charity says.
A survey found that 42% of the public think there is no point in keeping up contact at this stage.
Caring for a husband with dementia is a lonely and isolating experience, Alison Bulmer says.
“People say I am strong, but I don’t feel strong a lot of the time. The shower gets a lot of my tears.”
Her husband, Paul, 57, and from Cheshire, has a rare form of Alzheimer’s disease that attacks the back of the brain.
