Dementia: Every Picture Tells A Story

When I arrived home shortly before lunch Charlotte and Maureen were busy chatting in the garden.  I’m not really sure they noticed me taking this picture.  Charlotte is another excellent addition to our Care Team.  I guess she was telling Maureen about her recent holiday in Mexico as I carried on with preparing lunch.

I know that they hadn’t spent all the morning chatting as our ‘cunning plan’ had been carried out.  Three lovely outfits of Maureen’s choice now hang in her freshly aired wardrobe.

Charlotte played her deparure beautifully with: ‘I’ll pop in to see you next week when I’m around this way’.  You would never guess that she is hardly past her 21st birthday when you witness her understanding of dementia and the dignity with which she treats Maureen.
