The biggest obstacle I encountered was the general lack of knowledge about improvement possibilities for dementia. Most people, including most doctors I spoke with, thought it was a lost cause before we even began. I know many people believe that there is nothing that can be done when a person starts losing their faculties, however there are possibilities for help.

In addition, I’ve noted that some people are reluctant to getting a second or third opinion when they get a dementia diagnosis.  It is worth a search to find out what can be done.
