Depression, Sadness, Grief & Dementia

Depression, Sadness, Grief & Dementia

Dementia Chats™ was created with the intention to educate people living with dementia; their care partners both family and friends as well as professionals and advocates.  Our Experts are those diagnosed with dementia. We have been doing this series since July of 2012.
Today we discussed the following:
Depression, Grief, Sadness and Dementia
Today we address the following:
Dementia vs Depression
Grief, sadness and depression
Dementia and loneliness
Added stress for Care Partners due to loneliness
Quiet isn’t always lonely
Fear and depression
Advocacy and purpose can replace fear and depression
Depression is a personal experience
Sadness vs Depression
Look for things to be grateful for
Does loneliness have to do with how we grew up?
Care Partners are afraid of saying anything that might upset their person with dementia.
A sadness felt by both sides for different reasons
Listen and validate feelings
“Happy Places” can shift sadness and depression
Everyone with dementia is different and has their own “Happy Places.”

Walking The Tight Rope Of Sanity when Caregiving

Walking The Tight Rope Of Sanity –

072616 Graphic Roger Renik

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016,  we will be talking to have Roger Renik who found caring for an aging parent had many additional emotional aspects and challenges. Balancing on a tight rope and juggling many roles like a stressful second shift job, being a husband and father to two, plus caring for a parent can set life up to be unbalanced.  In Roger’s case, the conclusion of the caring for his mom was just the beginning of another challenging chapter in his life.
