Looking For Help

When I look at the “Stats” for my blog, one of the statistics they give me is the keywords people have used which brought them to my website. I look at these keywords almost every day and it makes is clear to me that so many of us are looking for help.

You may be like me, up during the wee hours of the night, searching the web for answers. For help to understand whatever new things have popped up in your world of living with dementia.

I wanted to share some of those keywords with you, as a reminder that while dementia is different for every person and family, we still have so much in common. We are all looking for answers to things we might not always talk about during the day at work, at school, or at home, but we search for in the anonymity of the internet.

Maybe it is helpful for all of us to know we are not alone:

“refuses to read books or exercise dementia”
“what if a dementia person is in denial?”
“combination of dementia and Parkinsons”
“dementia getting worse”
“dementia patients don't know what day it is”
“dementia the long goodbye”
“Alzheimer’s grief”
“dementia activities”
“Lewy Body prognosis”
"Dad care for Mom"
“Alzheimer’s dementia abandonment family”

The most frequently used search terms that bring you here, besides the title of the blog, are:

“bradykinesia or slowness of”
“for mom she noticed”
“dementia calendar”
“dementia quote”

I hope we continue to build community and find ways to be there for each other in our search for help.
