Denial About Dementia is a Common Occurance
From time to time, we're all in denial about various aspects of our life. It's how we cope — denial masks emotions of grief, loss, fear and uncertainty.
What causes denial? Many things: lack of communication, distance, self-preservation, fear of the unknown and uncertainty about the future. Denial, however, leads to the continuation of a downward spiral and makes the diagnosis of dementia even more traumatic and difficult to face.
At first, denial at it's best can be a healthy defense against admitting that your loved one has dementia.
Denial involves not acknowledging what you see or hear and/or unconsciously negating what you see or hear. Denial helps you block the more painful aspects of reality. However, if denial continues too long, then it can be life-threatening to you and your loved one.
Denial about dementia at it's worst can mean the withholding of essential treatment or development of a helpful care plan going forward.
When family caregivers are unrealistic about their loved one with dementia's level of functioning and care needs, they put their loved ones at risk.
"When my dad developed dementia, my mom tried to deny it and I tried to fix it. We both failed"
We see things changing and notice the person losing the ability to do what they once could. Often we're reluctant to step in and take over as it may feel like we're giving up on the person or crushing their independence.
Today we will be talking about how to maintain a realistic outlook on your loved one’s care, and thoughts on helping your other family members do the same. Tune in and listen to our guest this show, Theresa Haleen, Business Development Representative for Interim Healthcare and owner of Assisted Living Options for Seniors share her perspective on denial.

Common Myths About Dementia
There are many myths surrounding dementia that can obscure our understanding of the issues facing our loved ones who suffer from one or more of the 70+ causes of dementia, such as the leading cause - Alzheimer’s Disease. Tune in to discover just what is true and what is not!
And our guest will be talking about the importance of changing the dementia care culture of trying to traverse your dementia care journey and learning to the importance of "building a team of care champions" and the essential reality of reaching out for help, support and encouragement- all focused on the approximately 16 million caregivers-family members and professionals who are caring for a loved one, client or resident with any cause of dementia.
It has been said that life is a journey. If this is an apt metaphor, then dementia and Alzheimer’s comprise a divergent road with twists and turns that make navigation incredibly difficult. The signposts are unclear and the markers confusing. We may take a certain path and think it is the right one, only to find that the path has changed.
Laura Wayman, the Dementia Whisperer is a guide to help you navigate this divergent road. Based in California, Laura is a gerontologist, trainer, advocate for, and best-selling author on dementia disorders and care protocols. Her methods are unique, compelling, and highly successful.

Who Calls a Solemn Assembly? In ancient Israel, the call for a solemn assembly was issued by the nation’s leaders –prophets, priests, or kings. It was given to them & then passed to the people.
How Can You Participate? We want the Body of Christ to unite for 3 days & 3 nights to pray, fast, & blow the shofar for the world (i.e. healing for 5 year old Chad Carr of MI & 8 yr. old David Spisak Jr. of VA, call for justice & plead for truth (Isaiah 59:4) for France, & Africa). We want people to blow the shofar on the hour “so that we are on one accord”. We need believers/saints to intercede on their behalf for these children & even lay hands on them (Mark 16:17-18). The Body of Christ can start to pray & fast on Nov. 19, 20, 21, or 22 for 3 days & 3 nights. We want to be finished by 11/26.
