Last week I went to a workshop on Dementia and Alzheimers at Elderly Services in Middlebury. There was excellent information disseminated to the attendees by a woman from the Memory Center at Porter Nursing Home. Many of the resources she shared confirmed what we already knew about my father and his fairly recent diagnosis of Dementia. Dementia changes your life and the lives of those around you. Over time it is debilitating, stressful and frustrating for loved ones.
