Analyzing Finding Nemo and Dementia

After watching the Moving Finding Nemo yesterday, I got to thinking just how much the character Dorie reminds me of some of my clients. When I got home, I looked up movies that contained references toward this actual mind-boggling breakdown of the brain and sure enough, Finding Nemo was amongst the mix.
Seeing Dementia played out from a whole new perspective can be enlightening to even caregivers and medical personnel. We see what we see each and every day, but played out in a whole new light helps us to remain compassionate; wanting to lend our shoulder for those suffering to lean on. It helps us develop yet another method of displaying that With Age Comes Respect.
After all, none of would choose to get Dementia. If you think simply about the fish in this film, she is disoriented, constantly questioning herself, and downright sad because she simply cannot remember! No one in their right mind would choose any of that if they had a choice in the matter.
I thought about the movie all night and am convinced that I have to keep doing what I am doing simply because people feel comforted in my midst. I am proud to say that I am not a good caretaker but a great one. I owe all of this to God who led me to what I was born to do!
