It is Dementia Action Week in the United Kingdom. What story do we tell ourselves and the world about dementia? Is it one of regression, loss, emptiness, distance, frustration and deep sadness. Is it one of being, presence, nurture, compassion, growth and inquiry. For me, it is a cocktail of it all. Why do we chose to frame our dementia story in the way that we do? I suspect it is fear, love, care and not knowing. Do we frame in the memories (the stories) of the past or being in the present?
