Interactions, activities, and acquisitions.

As we acquire an associated coffer of cornball candied and acerb memories.

In one step, we lose:
Our relation/friend, or our assets – banking and infrastructural.

Where as, he ability not be acquainted of, as to ‘what was traveling on’.
When you are interacting with your ‘dementia’ friend;
Your alternation isn’t on the accepted lines.

The botheration is:
A dementia-patient detests to be told, ‘what to do’.
A altercation with a dementia-patient is of no use, as its anamnesis may be obliterated/forgotten anon afterwards.
If our acquaintance or affiliation develops dementia,
We are consistently clumsy to accommodate with the situation.
It is an irreversible phenomenon.
How to acquire the situation?
Dementia against Death
Dementia is beneath aching than death.
Our friend, affinity or ancestor is animate and in foreground of us.
But, we can’t collaborate the way we are acclimated to.

Bask in the celebrity of old memories.

And acquire by God’s dictates, as His command runs.

A selfless, adherent spouse, mother, daughter, and sister,
A talented, accommodating Taurian: a acknowledged administrator – aliment classes, followed by a adorableness clinic,
But now, dementia affects ‘current’ anamnesis loss,
Thus breathless deductions in conversation.
Its acquaintance creates abhorrence in the dementia-patient:
To acquaint or be agog actor in amusing communication.
The accommodating charge to be coaxed to communicate.
If there is adverse past, with the abettor spouse,
Life is a bigger challenge!
But God blesses, and the appearance carries on.
It is an opportunity, a claiming faced by animal beings only.
They will face it, and acquire to win for altruism is on the top basement of evolution.
