Hello, and welcome to another Wellness Wednesday topic. I am updating old posts, still, and that is quite time-consuming. I am also learning the art of grant writing. That is very interesting. Why do I mention these things? Well, it is Dementia awareness month and keeping your mind learning new things is a great way to help prevent Dementia. But, more about that in future posts.
Today, I want to discuss the types of Dementia. Dementia is a complicated term. If you watched the video from yesterday, then you know that everyone experiences Dementia in different ways. I can say that is very true. I have been working with Dementia residents for over 3 years, and they are all very different. How families, respond to their loved one having Dementia is also unique to each and every family.
There is a short video below that talks about the most common types of Dementia, but there are other types as well. If you would like to read more about the other types click here. For the purposes of this blog, I will discuss the more common types, prevention, and treatment. Plus, support for caregivers of those suffering from Dementia.
But, for today let’s learn about the different types of the more common forms of Dementia.
The video is short and worth the watch. There are a couple of terms in the video that I would like to define for you. Aphasia and Apraxia. These are medical terms that are speech-related. You can read more about these with explanations of each.
