  1. You are right, Megan, that culture change is also for people with dementia. Over 7 years of caregiving for my mother, I learned to pay more attention to her feelings and needs, to treat her, as you say, “as an adult,” even though at first it felt as if she had become my third child. Even with advanced dementia, Mom is definitely sensitive to the emotions of others, and to non-verbal communication. Well done, Megan!
