Question and answer
what stereotypes are there about dementia
HBO recently aired a four part documentary on dementia and Alzheimer’s disease; my friend and “brother-in-dementia,” Chuck Jackson were featured in the caregivers segment. [ The off-screen interviewer asked about his caregiver (assuming that his wife was his caregiver). Chuck stunned the interviewer by saying he was his own caregiver. The interviewer asked the question a second time, attempting to clarify as if Chuck didn’t understand the question. ‘Surely no one with dementia can manage their own lives’ was the implication. I am my own caregiver too. Being diagnosed does not mean we
are instantly incapable of running our lives. I know some are diagnosed quite late in the disease and are already incapacitated. My friend and sister-in-dementia, Jaye L. lives alone. She has been an intrepid explorer and consummate corporate professional all her life. Dementia has changed where and how she lives her life to some extent, but she is not in need of constant care. ]
