My friend Richard Taylor was diagnosed several years ago with dementia, probably of the Alzheimer’s type. His book, Alzheimer's from the Inside Out, is a series of essays about how dementia changed his life, his relationships and his view of the world.
Richard, a retired psychologist, has found his calling in helping people with dementia and their families and friends navigate these changes.
Check out Richard’s new website, and his thoughts on how to encourage someone with dementia to take a shower. Take some time to read his newsletters while you’re there.
