Finding our way through the world is something we all do every day but living with dementia can pose challenges for this. Places change and they may not look the way we expect them to look, this can lead to confusion and getting lost. Add to this perceptual difficulties such as steps looking like slopes and shadows looking like holes and the person can end up feeling very alone and frightened in the world. Gina recalls times when she has felt distant and detached from other people even when there are lots of people around.
