Dr. Richard Taylor. OK, this is way off topic for a food and pottery blog, but we saw and heard a speaker last night who, I wish, I had run across 5 or 6 years ago when my Mom really first started showing the signs of dementia.
Dr. Taylor has dementia and pleads for us (who supposedly don’t) to learn about what it’s like and how to help those who do have it. And please understand that of those who are 65, 1 in 7 has one of the 70 or so types, and at 85, 1 in 2 will have it). Think about those numbers for a minute and what it will take society to deal with in terms of money and people. Essentially everyone will have dementia or have to help someone who does. A couple of links to his website and to a book and DVD he has out on dementia and how to help those who have it.
