I’m writing a short story of a character near and dear to my heart who is trying to adapt to the news his grandmother has dementia. I’d love if any carers or nurses who have interacted with people with dementia could offer some of their experiences with their patients/loved one.
I want to dig deep into the impact of the illness on a younger person, so anything would be greatly appreciated. Personal or professional insights would be amazing. More in-depth or even just small grabs of info all welcome. No direct personal info or identifying features will be reproduced in my story. I’m just aiming to give an accurate a picture of his grandmother as possible.
