Dementia: Respite At Last – Madyamaka Bound

I will be leaving for the Madyamaka Buddhist Meditation Centre in Pocklington for a few days respite at 10 am.   I am extremely grateful to those people have worked very hard, at short notice, to make it possible for me to have a much needed break.

It is possible that Maureen’s current reality will make getting away relatively straightforward. As we have chatted this morning she has been addressing me as a member of staff in her ‘Care Home’.  I’m hoping that I will be able to slip away for a few days break without any upset: always better to look on the bright side with dementia.



About Remember Me

I am a retired adult educator. My wife had a stroke in February 2014 and now has mixed dementia. Her recovery from stroke has been exceptional apart from 50% loss of peripheral vision and vascular damage. 'Dharma For Dementia' is my approach to being Maureem's Care Partner: it aims to end the suffering of 'Prescribed Disengagement' (Swaffer) .
