Top Ten Frequently-Asked Questions


Living with Dementia

Living with Dementia

Dementia is a feared word in today’s society. It is normal to experience an array of emotions after receiving a diagnosis. The fear and stigma surrounding dementia makes envisioning a meaningful future where your strengths are valued seem impossible. Today, 5 million people in the US are living with dementia. New perspectives and approaches to support individuals living with dementia are needed today more than ever. Dementia is complex and can hold challenges but also opportunities for experiencing joy and learning.

Connecting with others is an important part of caring for ourselves. Eskaton support groups bring people together who are going through (or have gone through) similar experiences. If you are dealing with a major illness or a stressful life transition, you do not have to go through it alone—a support group can help.

Many of us already recognize the immense power of language and how it is used to shape our perceptions and understanding of the world we live in. Even more importantly, the words we use to define other people (or sub-sets of people) have a powerful influence on how we recognize and relate to one another.
