Living With Dementia or Alzheimer's

  • What is it like living with Dementia or Alzheimer's Disease?

    After conducting your own research, answer this question in a short, descriptive story, a power point, or anything in between. Be creative! Start with the powerpoint as a guide and really dig into the details. Use websites, youtube, family experiences, books -- anything you can think of.

    Cite your research (just have a references page at the end of your short story if you choose to write the short story).

    For instance, I might create a collage or a power point with pictures and real life descriptions of what it is like to live with someone who has Dementia, or maybe I would use the lyrics from the song "Silent House" by the Dixie Chicks (here's a sample:

    "And I will try to connect
    All the pieces you left
    I will carry it on
    And let you forget
    And I'll remember the years
    When your mind was clear
    How the laughter and life
    Filled up this...Silent House").
