An Alzheimer’s Disease Bill of Rights

 Every person diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease or a related disorder deserves:

  • To be informed of one’s diagnosis. 

  • To have appropriate, ongoing medical care.

  • To be productive in work and play as long as possible.

  • To be treated like an adult, not a child.

  • To have expressed feelings taken seriously.

  • To be free from psychotropic medications if at all possible.

  • To live in a safe, structured and predictable environment.

  • To enjoy meaningful activities to fill each day.

  • To be out-of-doors on a regular basis.

  • To have physical contact including hugging, caressing, and hand-holding.

  • To be with people who know one’s life story, including cultural and religious traditions.

  • To be cared for by individuals well-trained in dementia care.

  • To be Loved ,Respected and to Always have their DIGNITY maintained

  • I firmly believe in this credo ........LYN
