It’s nice to get recognition. For a fourth year, Healthline has selected Dealing With Dementia one of the Best Alzheimer’s Blogs. I started this blog for many reasons. One was to provide my siblings with insight into the issues I was facing as the only adult child living near my parents. But then it became a way for me to digest what was happening and dissect how I was dealing with it. I have lots of “mea culpa” blog posts. Turns out I finally figured out I learn by doing and I made a lot of mistakes.
Since I’m not one to miss a golden opportunity, I will use this to remind the readers that Alzheimer’s is just one of the five primary types of dementia’s — as shown in the image. It is the most common based on the number of diagnosed cases, but I also know that many individuals are never diagnosed.
Its been more than two years since I cared for a family member with dementia. Today I work with a variety of individuals and families who have been diagnosed and continue to learn how to be a better care partner.
For a full list of the winners, You can visit Healthline. I am honored to be recognized again for this honor. Encouraged.
