Understanding what is happening, knowing the conditions of the disease, trying to anticipate, identifying the pathology of the loved one.
How can we define ageing? It is an inevitable process that starts at birth and that intensifies with age. The most visible consequences are observed on the face and body (wrinkles, white hair, brown spots on the hands, etc.). Among the changes observed, there is strong interest in physiological and cognitive decline. So, what can be considered as “normal” ageing?
Are you familiar with ambiguous loss and grief? It is the mourning that one experiences when one’s loved one with neurocognitive disorders is still alive but no longer has the same emotional and mental presence. It involves mourning the loss of the relationship as it existed, of the projects, of the former way of life. We provide guidance so that you can prepare for and cope with this.
