Memory loss is a thief. Persons experiencing memory loss are robbed of lifelong capabilities, of their self-confidence, of good decision making, and eventually they are robbed of the interactions and memories they have cherished. Caregivers of a person with memory loss also are also victims of this thief. Their loved one’s memory loss robs the caregiver of their relationship and their roles in that relationship. Memory loss steals meaningful conversations and experiences. In its wake, the thief of memory loss leaves the caregiver with overwhelming responsibilities and often isolation. How can we defend against this thief?
