New Page – What is Dementia?

This year end, Clipper Chronicles launched new page titled “What is Dementia“.

What a minute, why is a predominantly sailing-focused blog talking about dementia?
Dementia is an age-related illness that I feel strongly for. It is one of those things that tend to affect us in multiple stages of our lives (Our grandparents, parents, and when we ourselves grow old). Particularly in Dementia, frustration often arise between our loved ones due to a lack of understanding. A lack of understanding of the illness and of the person affected by the illness.

So as you receive updates of my sailing journey during these few months, do also take the time to better understand dementia and debunk the common misconceptions surrounding the illness.
