One would think that with news coverage, television specials and even movies based on characters with Alzheimer’s disease, the stigma of dementia would ease. There shouldn’t be any more reluctance for people with Alzheimer’s disease to relate news of their dementia than if they had a cancer diagnosis. Yet the stigma that surrounds dementia, as well as most mental illnesses, is regrettably alive and well, often forcing people to erect a protective wall of denial around their symptoms rather than seek help.Thanks to courageous people, we are seeing some cracks in the wall of that denial.
