Grandma soiled my favourite white shirt, tore up my encyclopedias and kept it in her wardrobe and insisted her bra was mine...but her most basic function to see me is to say good morning regardless of the time and always sighs in relief because I’m home. Can’t be mad.

When we love someone who is experiencing , we should be focused on their emotional needs and abilities, not see only the disabilities dementia causes. When we put our attention on our loved ones, we help them function successfully and feel safe and at peace.

Mum’s move to a new has been more traumatic than I imagined. It felt at times that all the months of preparation, shortlisting, interviews & visits were a complete waste of time. But there are some positive signs & I am ever hopeful.

My dad is in the early stages of dementia. Lately all he has been talking about is fishing, yet the last time he went was 17 years ago. For his birthday my brother and I took him and to see that smile will stay with me forever. Hopefully take him more regularly.

Mom does this with her hands constantly. Trying to decide if a fidget blanket would be beneficial to her. Thinking not. Anyone every use one with their loved one?

His isn’t even being spoken about. The signs are obvious. I would like to think he will get so bad, he won’t be able to run nor hide his symptoms behind tie adjustments or suit coat adjustments. He is going to fall flat and hard.

"We live in a society that values youth, success, health and self-sufficiency. So what about the person who is old, frail, confused, increasingly dependent on others? Perhaps we fail to properly acknowledge because to do so would be to acknowledge our own vulnerability.

1/ As the average life expectancy in is ~ 18 months for pts, why do we not refer to this setting as a long-term unit? Why do we refer to as a “chronic disease” when it is a terminal illness?

first time meeting my client and she wanted me to sit next to her and hold her hand. So for 4 hours we held hands and I excitedly repeated to her my name over and over.
