    Of course, when our parents get sick, giving back to them can be extremely meaningful. But the demands of dementia can tax even the most well-meaning adult children, who often have their own.   According to the World Health Organization, there are over 50 million people living with dementia. It is the leading cause of a loss of independence in seniors and one of the hardest diseases to accept. So what do you do when your aging parent refuses to admit there is a problem? Dealing With a Parent Who Denies Dementia Symptoms.

    The Alzheimer’s and dementia care journey. Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia can be a long, stressful, and intensely emotional journey. But you’re not alone. In the United States, there are more than 16 million people caring for someone with dementia—and many millions more around the world.   Someone’s pre-Alzheimer’s personality may trigger increased hoarding behavior at the onset of the disease. For example, an elderly parent who was already anxious about aging and the possibility of outliving their resources may begin to collect “useful” items and obsessively save money due to their feeling overwhelmed by what lies ahead.
