TikTok's #dementia is Raking up Billions of Views, Highlighting Care for Aged Loved Ones
TikTok has become a way for caregivers to share their experiences caring for their parents with dementia as a way to find support and for education, but top priority should be patient dignity and safety says Dorothee Caminiti, director of bioethics.
"The problem I see is that it is very difficult to assess if the person has the capacity to consent."
"A family member could decide they would post these videos of this person, but that doesn't mean that they should."
