All too often persons with dementia have been told or taught that they are no longer capable. They are taught to believe that someone must take care of them because they are no longer able to care for themselves. It is very easy to train dependency in dementia. What if we viewed dementia as a disability rather than a disease? The emphasis would shift to focusing on their abilities and strengths rather than on what they can no longer do.
