All the dementia sufferers, who contribute to this forum are obviously aware of their condition, which makes their posts so very moving. But these posts are also of great importance to the rest of us, giving us an insight into how dementia affects people that otherwise we could only guess at. We are in their debt. But it is this question of insight which I find so puzzling. My wife has, I believe, no such insight. She will, at times, confess that her memory isn’t all that good. In actual fact it’s almost non-existent. As to all the other symptoms, cognition, orientation etc. she gives no sign of being aware that she has problems with all of these. As far as I have been able to ascertain, none of the other residents in my wife’s CC. have any insight into their condition. I suppose that anyone, who has this insight, would not need to be in a CH. But that raises questions that I have not seen addressed. I know it is always emphasised that each person is unique, but it seems to me there is a fundamental division between those who have an insight into their condition and those who do not. I have seen little discussion of this aspect of dementia and would appreciate hearing other's views and experience. I’ve been down so many blind alleys on my dementia journey, maybe this is just another.
