How do you define normal? Is it meant to be standard or common? Is it meant to be average? Or, can it be defined as free from, or, thought of as a natural occurrence? With these many definitions of the word normal, then, how easily can one describe the behavior of a senior living with Alzheimer’s, Dementia or other memory loss as normal? Who can really say what normal even looks like for a senior challenged with any of these conditions? What is normal memory loss opposed to memory loss occurring because of cognitive decline? What will a normal day look like when you are providing care for someone with Dementia? What is normal anyway?
The fact is, normal can be many things. Normal could mean daily repetition without change. It could just be a day without difficulties. Normal can and will change for seniors living with a type of memory loss condition, and will most likely change often. Will you be prepared for the changes? Can you adapt to be the new normal?
