Hi I'm doing some research for a bio homework, I just wanted to know if anyone knows if dimentia patients (particularly those who recently developed it) can remember care givers (e.g. A volunteer who works at a care home with that specific resident with dementia once a week for a few hors and has been doing it for a year or two)
Thanks 🙂

Dementia and the way it is presented is very personal and individual. I've looked after patients with dementia who remembered who I was day in and day out. As well as those I would have to reintroduce myself to at every interaction.

By the by a good amount of patients with dementia will remember you, especially if it is newly diagnosed. But this can change quickly in some people and not much at all in others.

Love the way you've asked the question. #NotAtAllSubtle :P

But dementia varies. See below:

Lol, I was supposed to write up a report and include quotes and examples after i spoke to some volunteers at a care home but forgot to ask them that question.
