I know that technology is not something exclusively used by the younger people involved with dementias [my Dad is a real geek at 79!] but this is probably the best place to put this thread. Although I have worked with computers since 1965, it was only since my wife started to show symptoms of Early Onset Dementia that I found a PC to be truly indispensible, for: - learning more about the dementias - learning more about the treatments - sending for emergency prescriptions in the night - ordering food from Tesco when unable to leave the house for weeks on end - keeping in contact with family and friends - keeping a precise diary of my wife's symptoms [so helpful when later seeing consultants] [page 300 about to come up] - maintaining a record of her life, for me and for the youngsters who will never know her - writing letters to the 'authorities' - producing photographs to place on the walls of her room - etc [there are more but I should really be working at the moment!] Does anyone else have similar experiences? By the way, I bought my first digital camera 4 years ago because my wife would forget what we had done in the day. I would photograph all kinds of things [even nice cakes for example], and print them out at the end of the day so we could relive things and I could try and prompt her memory. Invaluable, as it also enabled me to chronicle our last days together and that was so important.
