World Alzheimer’s Month – “Alzheimer Annie Lets You In”

Today’s re-blog as part of the Campaign to Ban BPSD, the Behavioural and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia and World Alzheimer’s Month focuses on an article by Susan Macauley titled “Alzheimer Annie Lets You In”

“Alzheimer Annie is a fictional character I created to help people understand what being in a long-term care facility (LTCF) might feel like.”

Susan shares the twenty-nine “problem behaviours” on the NHBPS, each with a corresponding vignette that describes the behaviour from Alzheimer Annie’s point of view (some are “still in the works”)
