It is often difficult for a spouse to come to terms with the personality changes that happen with dementia. We have an article on the A Place for Mom blog, How to Recognize When You’re in Denial About Your Parents’ Health. The article discusses denial in a general way that is relevant to all family members and details why denial happens and strategies to cope with it.
