Hello, where to start? How about don't lie to people coping with the symptoms of dementia. Don't start by underestimating them. Don't oversimplify their thought processes. Don't judge them as being incapable of understanding. Don't deny them their legitimate feelings and concerns about those they love.

NUDE MICE

 

Hello, yet more good news for nude mice. Yet, more false hope for human beings living with the symptoms of dementia. Mice, nude or not, do not "get" Alzheimer’s disease. They "get" a poor memory.
