Dementia makes using the hands and fingers in a productive way more difficult. If the brain is sending the signals, arthritis is making the movement difficult. If arthritis is not a problem, the brain may not be sending the signals. UGH! If you are left-handed, try being a “righty” for a few hours. If you are a righty, try being a “lefty”. Not easy! This experience will help you understand, first-hand (pun intended) what dementia feels like. Write me with your stories or questions about dementia – email@example.com .
