Educating Family Members in Denial

Posted August 6, 2013

 

Education is powerful. Encourage attendance at workshops and conferences. Give them time—denial usually goes away as dementia progresses. A good tip if you are really dealing with divergent family views: take your family member to a neuropsychologist for an evaluation. When the report shows your loved one thinks she is 42 and not 82 or that President Eisenhower is doing a great job, it can be hard to deny it any longer.
