In my short time as a caregiver, it appears the general public has limited understanding about Alzheimer's care. When people visit my father, they assume he just "forgets." I explain his diagnosis and it is dismissed. Almost as if there is a level of exaggeration on my part. They do not comprehend he can not use the phone/ or that he doesn't recognize his own offspring. How do I deal with this denial and keep my father's privacy and integrity?
