Individuals with dementia demonstrate presence every day, and they ask us to enter their world and connect with them. For caregivers, being present by providing undivided attention, to a spouse or partner, children, friends, coworkers can be challenging especially while caring for a loved one with dementia. But, true presence provides life’s greatest reward: a sense of love and belonging.
