Why People with Dementia Say No (And What to Do About it)

The use of the word “no” eventually becomes a procedural memory. A procedural memory is the memory of how to do something. Procedural memories, which include feeding oneself and brushing one’s teeth, will remain even after we lose other memories, like why or when we should do something.

Logic and explanations do not work. There is not enough available memory to process this information. When the number of words are greater than the brain capacity, the brain falls back on the procedural memory of “no.”

Alzheimer's patients often wander and get lost. This behavior can happen at any time or at any stage of the disease. Just because they have never wandered before, doesn't mean they won't do it in the future. Wandering can sometimes result in death.
