Why do you use the phrase “your person” to refer to a person with dementia?

The term "your person" is short for "your person living with dementia or other neurologic condition".  We shorten it to "your person" for readability.  We have recieved feedback from caregivers that using a term such as "loved one" does not land well when you are in the thick of managing difficult behaviors and changes.  Using a term such as "family member" is not broad enough to capture people who are non-family member caregivers.  Likewise, other terms such as, "spouse", "sibling", or "parent", leave out whole segments of the caregiving population.  Therefore, "your person" is a neutral, brief, and universal way to refer to the person living with dementia.
