Can those with Alzheimer's be content?
Is it possibly to be content when one's brain is parting ways with itself?
Depending on the moment and what part of the brain is being activated, the answer seems to be yes.
Unfortunately the senses of the body can very quickly activate another part of the brain's jumbled data of experiences, real, imagined, or dreamed. Fear and doubt enter in which sometimes can be calmed by others who are able to distract by a touch on the arm and an attempt to distract the attention of the person to something on which they can focus their eyes. It is best to try not to prove the incorrectness of the person's statements, no matter how bazaar they may seem, or even to try to reteach a concept.
Speaking slowly and calmly, not shouting, but loud enough for the person to hear, getting physically down to their level, and smiling at the person helps the one who has Alzheimer's to be content for a while.
Note: There are many stages of Alzheimer's and many other types of dementia, and each person's experience is very different. If you have a loved one who you think may have Alzheimer's or another type of dementia, for their sake and your own, please use the many resources online and in your own community to better understand this condition.
