Zimbabwe Alzheimer’s and Related Disorders Association – ZARDA

For most people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, ignorance is not bliss

Imagine losing the ability to remember… to think… to function. First, you forget simple words, or miss important dates, or misplace familiar items. You have difficulty doing things that you’ve always done. Then, slowly, the confusion builds. Names and faces are harder to recognize. As a result, you may start to withdraw from the world around you — narrowing your world to the places you find most safe.

–   Now imagine explaining these symptoms to a doctor — then being sent away without a clear explanation, or any diagnosis at all to help you understand the changes. For too many people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and their loved ones, this happens every day

–   Lack of knowledge about dementia leads to inaccurate assumptions about its effects on the person and their family and negative stereotypes about how a person with dementia will behave.
