Cognitive and memory impairments affect how a person thinks and acts. It can also influence their feelings. Simple tasks like every day conversation can become challenging when mixed with memory issues or repetitive questions from your loved one. Cognitive issues may also increase paranoia, destroy motivation, cause poor judgment, and result in instances of wandering. Some people may even be aggressive and belligerent.
It’s very important that you have assistance if you are caring for a loved one with cognitive impairment. It’s emotionally demanding for both of you to live with this disease.
