Paul Pepper: Lois Long, Persons with Dementia Advocate/Volunteer, "Patience"
Everyone's experience with persons with dementia is different, but the best thing you can do - no matter the situation - is be patient, that's according to advocate/volunteer LOIS LONG. She says because it's usually short-term memory that's affected, to listen to the person "even though you've heard the story a hundred times." Lois reads another of her original poems at [6:40].
