Socialization is essential for a person with dementia, but there are things to be careful of.
Music can frame some of our greatest moments, joy, sorrow, love and of course pain and loss. So many emotions can be captured in music. So many things can change with Dementia but music, yes music can still help us find and even remember joy in the morning.
Dealing with a disease like dementia and especially Lewy Body Dementia require getting early attention and diagnosis. The effect of not openly seeking help is self-doubt, depression, inward and outward anger and just plain frustration.
This Process is very personal, it should not be rushed. It is important to keep in mind that not everyone goes through all stages of grief, and certainly not all people go through the stages in the same order. For some people, certain stages may last only hours other much longer. You may find yourself moving back and forth through stages.
This Stage focuses on a deep sense of loss, is felt in varying degrees from person to person. Depression replaces the anger and the attempts at bargaining. With it comes forlorn thoughts of the future, for some feelings of guilt, shame of not doing the things that matter, failure and regret.
