Those living with Mild Cognitive Impairment, Alzheimer’s disease or dementia often experience unwelcome changes such as; concentration gaps, memory loss, word-finding difficulties, verbal repetitions, faulty thinking, changes in behaviour, social withdrawal, etc. We recognize that these cognitive-disruptions can interfere with the flow of routine daily life, work, leisure & social interactions, and with close relationships…even when the disruptions are minor nuisances or inconsistent in nature. And we understand that these ‘disruptions’ can be worrying, frustrating and stressful for the person with the cognitive-condition, as well as for those interacting with them…such as family members.
“Living-with” any of these disruptions “in-your-life” is never easy.
