20 things that are not shut down, quarantined, cancelled or kept at a distance when we deal with challenges such as pandemics and dementia

0

Friday March 20, 2020: To say these are challenging times is a massive understatement. But we have all been through challenging times, as individuals, as communities, as nations.

Yet, so far, we have managed to survive as individuals, and as a species. We have what it takes to get through seemingly impossible challenges, especially when we work together.

Dementia care partners everywhere know that to be a fact. We have learned what it takes to survive and thrive on a day-to-day basis – sometimes even a moment-to-moment basis! Unbelievably, many of us have discovered joy and inspiration along the way.

We can make it through this pandemic. Dementia care partners worldwide know we can, because we’ve learned how to deal with stuff like this. It’s part of the territory. Yes, there will be seemingly unbearable loss and grief. But those too are part of the territory. Part of being human.
