“What if I say the wrong thing?”

“What if at some point I say something that completely confuses the person living with dementia? Should I really do this Embracing their reality thing, because what if I embrace the wrong reality and then they get upset?”

I have a few stories related to this subject, so join me in this episode for some tips on how to deal with it!
