What The Dementia

What The Dementia

By Breanna Wilson
On What the Dementia we will discuss important issues that you may run into as care partner, challenging dementia behaviors you may encounter, we will demystify certain dementia care topics, and learn to question certain practices that may be better approached a different way. Our biggest goal is to integrate dementia care talks into everyday conversations. Dementia definitely sucks, but we need to talk about it! If you think that Bambu Care and our What the Dementia podcast can help you along your care partner journey, we encourage you to subscribe to the podcast and stay tuned.
