A Bit About Dementia & What It Is Not
Dementia is a word, which tends to strike fear in our hearts. I will be the first to admit that I used to see dementia in the same light as most other people; but, as I began to explore visual perceptual performance, I began to see that there were some apparent differences between those who did have an untreatable dementia most other people with age related cognitive issues. The actual numbers of people with untreatable cognitive deficits are very, very small. Most people have an entirely treatable condition called a visual perceptual deficit.
As a consequence of this, the first step, for anyone seeking a diagnosis, is to see a healthcare professional who actually knows what they are talking about. There is little value in being told you have dementia, when the person making such a diagnosis has no background in the active treatment of cognitive deficits.

performance, if they do not have the experience in the
hands on treatment of cognitive disorders. The reality is that most of
the people diagnosing these conditions do not have such experience.
Added to this is an incredibly superficial perspective most such conditions are
viewed from, with the outcome being that everyone with a cognitive
issue tends to be lumped together under the same inaccurate
and inappropriate label.
Indeed, be present and focus on what you are doing.

habits. One of the consequences of not paying attention is that parts
of the task are overlooked or skipped over, leading to chaotic task
