The irony of this video is the patient himself was a very very active person

They're millions of Dementia. Patients who are in their forties suffering with dementia, to see someone you love forgetting where they live, forgetting where they put things, forgetting family names. Everything about daily activities is difficult for them .its frustrating for the patients and difficult for families to understand.

Tragic for everyone concerned. Very sad.

I have a mom with dementia. I fully understand how it was for her. From the beginning of the onset where we and she 1st realized there was an issue till today.

I want to share my view: i don't think keeping them just working can help them much. This is just to make them feel they are engaged. It does not help in the TREATMENT, which is what the patient really needs. They don't need you to waste their time on merely keeping them busy. In fact, they will feel down that you are seeing them being wasteful.

We're consuming too much processed food and too stressed out...

When the idea of cafe, health and working with both young and more elders all come to one place. Love the last clip lead by the Alzheimers Society in Singapore. <3

Why has it increased so much, is no one trying to find the cause.

At least it ended on a positive note, and a hopeful future for those with Alzheimer's, although it's not a treatment.

Beyond heart rendering. It is the long goodbye.
George you are a Love.
This made me weep.

Good for George to not give up. May your wife continue to have strength, love and support to keep helping you. George, you are a very fortunate man to have such a lovely wife.

Thats because they are too busy to find time to relax, be happy and enjoy with family and friends and maybe find time for God that makes us all....

There is much wisdom in this short documentary. One of the major symptoms of a dementia is "behavioural apathy" which means it is increasingly harder for a person living with a dementia to be engaged, for the brain to be stimulated. Just by engaging in small ways - for instance, the dementia cafe - will help enormously.

Show the full was out running making this dementia worse instead of dancing which would have probably prevented and everything else about it

Exercise is just a healthy lifestyle but it does NOT slow down the disease. There is only ONE substance on the planet that can slow down or reverse Alzheimers. It's a fact. The drug companies don't want the public. It was discovered by a female doctor when her husband got the disease. It's the only thing that stopped the disease in my family. Even the caregivers and doctors were shocked by the improvement. It works. Do your research and stop giving them drugs. Drugs don't work.

Maybe try taking more brain food and suplements like Pyrroloquinoline quinone PQQ and Cq10. Better to consult a doctor. Just suggesting.

Sadly, when I forgot something, it makes me think that im old.
