We’ve heard of someone we know or an acquaintance that has been diagnosed with either Dementia or a Neurodegenerative disease. We hear reports of celebrities who are presently taking up the latest ‘awareness’ fad that centers around a particular degenerative disease or even dementia since they personally knew someone who is afflicted by it.
If there was anything to be taken away from this is the fact that both dementia and neurodegenerative diseases can hit anyone no matter their standing in life or their current state of health. The common saying is that you never really know what it is like until it either happens to you or someone you know. So if you have anyone in your family with dementia or any neurodegenerative disease, don’t think that you’ll get it as well.
