Imagine yourself caring for someone who has dementia. Now imagine finding out that you also have dementia. You probably won’t believe that scenarios like this happen in real life but this interview will make you pause and think about how unpredictable life can be.
In this episode, I, Kimberly D. Scott, interview Dallas Dixon, a former criminal defense attorney and author of The Dancing Dementia Dude: An Urgent Conversation Between Dementia Folks, Care Partners and God.
Dallas was a caregiver for his uncle for about 10 years. It was a world he never knew he would be in let alone find himself in the same situation that his uncle was in after he was diagnosed with Vascular Dementia in 2014. This interview is about his unconventional route to and through dementia. He shared that even though some might find the journey hard, one should never forget to see the light of things. Acceptance, humor, and the willingness to continue riding the waves of life are the key to make things a bit easy and memorable.
Listen to the whole interview for Kimberly and Dallas will let you have a glimpse of dementia’s cool side and what superpowers it brings.
