What you are saying is not based on fact at all. Alzheimer's, a form of dementia, caused by plaque build up on the brain alone effects over
30% of whites, 58% of African Americans, and 62% of Hispanics over the age of 85.
www.alz.org... - Pg 16
There are also many other forms of dementia, and given this persons age it is highly probable that this is what they are suffering from.
Did i say it was based on fact?
What i said was based on opinion... and experience dealing with the elderly.... And the OP didn't ask what caused dementia in any case.
IF what i said was based on fact... i would have linked a source...
Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias are not a part of normal aging
Like i said... its NOT a part of normal aging...
*facepalm*, nice opinion, source please, giving this advice to people and presenting it is fact is dangerous, when these people speak to the
spirits that tell them to do something dangerous are you going to sit back and let it happen because the spirits are telling them to do it?
Try reading what i said... I didn't state what i said as a fact... This is comming from a very spiritually versed person... In Many cases the
people that experience what i was speaking of have absolutely no mental health condition what so ever... Seeing "spirits" is a normal when someone
is close to passing... Even when theres no mental health condition.
or are you going to look at the more plausible and scientifically and factually sound answer that dementia has set in and this person can no
longer think rationally and therefore safely for themselves.
I would never mix my beliefs with my career... Regardless of what i believe... I have to keep things strictly on a professional level... Meaning i
can not give my opinion to these people... i can only give comfort.
On the other hand this is a forum... and here i can freely use my beliefs in my posts at my own leasure...
I myself do believe there is more to this world and believe it is possible that they do see spirits, but I have also seen the effects of
dementia first hand and advise that If you really do care for the elderly, by all means let them have their beliefs but do not take their beliefs as
fact for yourself when you are supposed to be looking out for their safety.
Your advice is not wanted, needed, or appreciated....especially comming from the condescending stance you've taken here...
I have no reason to lie about what i do for a living... and i don't lie either way...
I was offering some comfort to another member of this forum from a spiritual point of view...
So to reiterate...... I didn't say what i said was based on fact... It was an opinion based on experience dealing with the elderly... and not all
of them have mental health conditions. Yet almost all of them experience this phenomenon...
Thanks for the reply... Try reading what you're replying to next time
