Posted on May 24, 2023 - Movies and television shows have long portrayed people with dementia in a very stereotypical way. The scene is usually a woman wandering around (probably in a nightgown) outside of home; she appears lost and distracted. The woman is unable to recognize her own children when they find her and want to bring her to safety; she may even resist. She has Alzheimer’s. While there is some truth to this vignette—most individuals with dementia are women and the greatest number of dementia cases are Alzheimer’s—ironically, a big aspect of this condition is forgotten. Dementia often includes sensory loss as well. Hearing, seeing, smelling, tasting, and touching can all be impacted.
