Monday, August 27, 2018 – What is happening when someone has dementia? It’s important to understand the job of the brain because it is the guiding system, the maintenance system, and the managing system of the body. Learn more about the role of the limbic system, the prefrontal cortex, the sensory motor strip, and the importance of the occipital lobe for seeing and doing. It is estimated that with most dementias the brain shrinks one third of its original size causing many changes in structural and chemical ability.
Dementia is not a memory problem.
It means brain failure and causes
many changes in structural
and chemical function.
That sentence above is one of the most important statements that I’d like everyone to know. That’s why it is in large print, centered and bolded!
This video below is an overall great explanation of the parts of the brain and how they change, shrink or stop working with dementia. I can never say enough about how Teepa Snow explains so clearly all aspects of dementia.
