Dementia care is relationship; building a new relationship with a changed person. The new trend is toward empowering personhood. I like that word, don't you? There are many ways to help a person with dementia live a fuller more pleasant life. So, I haven't said it all; I just have to say it again and again in different ways to fit the needs of the caregiver I'm working with.
