If you have a loved one with dementia, you know this can be a heart-wrenching process. You cannot change the person. The person you are caring for has a brain disorder that shapes whom he/she has become. When you try to control or change their behavior, you’ll most likely be unsuccessful or be met with resistance. Personally speaking, you have to meet them where they are, roll with it, and speak with love and patience. It was a pleasure to speak to Dr. David Weisman, a neurologist. He shares his clinical trial studies on dementia, how to care and communicate with someone with dementia.
