Experiencing vs Perception

How Dementia/Alzheimer's is experienced is memorably different than how it is perceived! This quote appeared on Facebook and it really made me think a lot about Gregory and my experiences with Dementia/Alzheimer's.

It is very Buddhist and very true and very inspiring as so many of us try to create change in how the disease is regarded and how care is provided!

To be able to perceive what a person living with Dementia experiences, we must be able to change our thinking and understanding as the person with Dementia changes since often, the person herself cannot make those changes!
