One day, an elderly mother was diagnosed with dementia. Her son, a single man in his 50s, was surprised and confused. Mother and son started their days of struggle, coming face-to-face with dementia.
The author is a popular science journalist Shinya Matsuura. As a successful man in his 50s, he was living with his mother to support her and believed that he would continue this footloose bachelor life. All of the sudden, however, his mother, who was enjoying her life, was suffered from dementia. He first noticed the sign when she told him that she lost her bankbook. No one wants to disrupt the life they have established. If you don't admit that something is wrong, it won't become a reality. So he didn’t react to the sign, as if nothing had happened.
From such lack of recognition, he missed the sign of his aged mother’s problem, and it gradually led to a mayhem.
Delayed primary care due to lack of recognition, knowledge and resources.
It is quite a rare case to hear about a single man in his 50s tackling with the elderly care of his parent with dementia. Don’t miss this nonfiction story narrated with pathos, speaking out frankly on the reality of being a family caregiver.
