Dealing with Dementia

Shrinkette, a psychiatry resident in OR has a great blog and frequently has really interesting things to say about mental health issues. Today she touches on an important issue in the mental health profession: The increasing incidence of dementia as the population ages and the difficulties that doctors and families face in dealing with dementia patients. Imagine how you might react if you suddenly were unable to remember how to do the things you do everyday. Surrounded by strangers in unfamiliar places, how would you react? She presents a great roundup based on this NYT article(may require registration, sorry folks), and several AD resources for more information.
