  1. I'm really happy that you posted this video about how to keep those we love safe. My grandpa has dementia. Every now and then, he will wander outdoors. It can get scary sometimes! Maybe these tips will help us as we try to keep him indoors with us. http://www.comforcare.com/arizona/scottsdale

  2. Though she used a very calm voice, reality orientation has no business in Dementia Care. I thought you guys from UCLA know that.

    1. Both reality orientation (truth) or validation (going along with their version of events) have a place - it depends on the person and situation and achieving an outcome of least distress. Saying a person with dementia has no ability to appreciate reality orientation is discarding them as being incapable of being treated as a capable unique human and limiting the tools available to them. People with narrow fixed views have no place in Dementia Care. Everyone knows that.

  4. Best think we ever did for my Dads safety was install dead bolts that require a key from the inside. We keep a key on a laynard around our neck. Before doing this he escaped several times and would fall and get hurt
