Dorothy’s Dementia

Kids vs Old Folks

The kids have the youth the wonder and the innocence.   Old people have age, wisdom and wrinkles.

For care giving- I’ve found you nurture them pretty much the same way.

They each have an active imagination

They each get upset and emotional and throw tantrums

They each ask the same questions over and over and over again

They each love to be heard

They each are full of wonder- not necessarily in the same way- but still full of wonder

They each are scared of the dark and monsters

They each like to laugh

They each have concern on their faces when they don’t understand 

They each want to be hugged

They each want to be told how special they are

They each want to hear that you are proud of them

They each just want to be loved 

If you have an older person with Dementia or any other illness or they are blessed enough not to have any issues. Be sure to embrace them, try to understand how they feel.  Actually but yourself in their shoes for a few hours- try to understand how scary it is for them to be going through what they are going through.

Peace & Love,

Cheryl Doreen
