Dementia: Never A Dull Moment

Life is certainly interesting with dementia: something of a Chinese curse.  I just caught site of Maureen on the way to having a shower.  She said she needed one but wouldn’t wash her hair, as she was having it done later in the week.

I can’t remember the last time Maureen chose to have a shower: many have tried to get her into the cubicle and failed.  I am just wondering if this is an early New Years’ resolution.

One of the benefits of blogging is that our support team keep in touch with how things are going.  I have just had an E Mail from Mel, my Admiral Nurse, regarding Maureen’s presentation over the last few days.  I continue to count my blessings on the quality of support we receive as we continue on our journey.
