Dementia

The great problem that we have...

...and I am referring to the unheard number of dementia and Alzheimer's patient, is that we shrug them away a little too often. They are weak and frail but that doesnt mean that they should be treated less than what they deserve. This, I think, has led to the mentality that we can just do whatever we like to them. This is sad, just sad.
