This was posted in a private Facebook group I happen to belong to.
So this happened today in the great state of Ohio. My significant other is a nurse that works with Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. The 35 patients in her unit have no idea who they are. You should hear some of the stories about the things they think are reality. They are bad. There’s no help. No bringing them back. Their minds are completely gone. It’s very sad but that’s another story. But today at noon, a group of people came in to have them vote in the Ohio primary (since early voting is now). Kim (my significant other) asked them how can they vote when they don’t know who they are and she was told “we help them”. “Help them how?” Was greeted with no response. Of the 35 patients, only one knew who the current president was and the rest ranged from Reagan to FDR as to who they thought the president was. HR came and told her to “shut up about it already. It’s their right”. They don’t have the right to walk outside the facility but they do to vote?
