madalas, 'pag may dementia, they really need a 24 hr caregiver. nakakatakot yan. minsan nakakalimutan na may linuluto, naiwan bukas ang oven, etc. and in the US, mahirap because their kids either live far away or don't want to have anything to do with them. also, because they've lived independently all their lives, ayaw nila na inaalagan.
but yeah, they need constant care. i'm not handling cases like this but i deal with older adults and where i am, the typical course talaga is to get caregivers or to place them in assisted living facilities. pero 60-somethings? that's too young, IMO. kawawa naman..
