This picture just broke my heart. Imagine forgetting everything and everyone in your life. Its like starting a new chapter of your life altogether.
Imagine the trauma faced by your loved ones when you, as a patient of dementia don’t recognize them at all. Every single day is a nightmare for the loved ones as they can’t leave them unattended or even go out for their basic day to day activities.
They just stare at you as you are a stranger to them. They hesitate to talk to you. They want to be left alone as they fail to recognize and remember their routine activities too. If left alone, they wander away not knowing who they are nor are they able to give any detailed information about their caretaker if found by any good samaritan. What can be more painful than this!
