How to Respond to Confusion, a Common Symptom of Alzheimer’s Disease

Dementia confusion, a common symptom of Alzheimer’s, can lead to recent memories being forgotten or distorted, while memories from the more remote past frequently remain intact. This can cause more distant situations to make more sense to an older person with dementia than the present. A person’s alternate reality could be the senior’s way of making sense of the present through past memories.
