My dad has dementia

Harry

"My grandpa takes care of us after school when mum is at work because my dad doesn’t know how to anymore. He is still funny but he also sleeps a lot. I don’t know why he has dementia but I wish he didn’t ever get it."

My dad has something called dementia and it means that his brain doesn’t work properly. He doesn’t know how to use the microwave anymore. He just looks at it and gets confused. He doesn’t understand my homework and forgets to tell me I have to do it when my mum is at work.
