What Is Dementia?
Dementia refers to a condition or disease that affects the brain. It specifically targets a person’s ability to remember things and perform daily tasks. Quite often, a person can become disoriented and forget where they are and what they are doing. For Glenneta, she found herself experiencing this condition. This is why she was placed in a home for the elderly in a city called Roseville, in the state of California.
She needed some help once in a while, and the facility she was placed in allowed her some autonomy. She was still free to wander around, but when she became a bit confused, there was always an orderly to help her get back to her room.
