If I get Dementia

 

    By Rachael Wonderlin

 

            If I get dementia, I want my friends and family to embrace my reality.
         
      If I think my spouse is still alive or if I think we’re visiting my parents
         for dinner, let me believe those things I’ll be much happier for it.

 

                   If I get dementia I don’t want to be treated like a child. 
                                  Talk to me like the adult that I am.

 

        If I get dementia, I still want to enjoy the things that I’ve always enjoyed.
                              Help me find a way to exercise read and visit friends.

 

                      If I get dementia, ask me to tell you a story from my past.

 

               If I get dementia, and I become agitated take the time to figure 
                                         out what is bothering me.

 

         If I get dementia, treat me the way that you would want to be treated.

 

If I get dementia, make sure that there are plenty of snacks for me in the house.      
                    Even now, if I don’t eat, I get angry, and if I have dementia,
                                I may have trouble explaining what I need.

 

              If I get dementia, don’t talk about me as if I’m not in the room.

 

               If I get dementia, don’t feel guilty if you cannot care for me
                                   24 hours a day, 7 days a week 365
 
             It’s not your fault, and you’ve done your best. Find someone who can
                           help you or choose a great new place for me to live.

 

If I get dementia, and I live in a dementia care community, please visit me often.
