Question and answer
Q: Describe how myths and stereotypes related to dementia may affect the individual and their carers
A: Myth #1: Dementia only affects other people...it cannot happen to me or to people I know. [ Dementia affects only the patient, not his or her family. Fact: Uncertainty or confusion about the causes and effects of dementia may provide someone a rationale to deny that a family member has the illness because they do not belong in the "at risk" group. 6%-8% of people over age 65 have dementia and
33% of those over age 85 have some dementia symptoms. ]
