Dementia: Picking The Right Moment

I had everything set up for the Manager at Royal Court Care Home to assess Maureen this morning but unfortunately when I returned home she was fast asleep.  He is available until 4 pm so there will be another opportunity to move things forward this afternoon.   This will be a real test of my ability to cajole Maureen into something that is in our Best Interests.  All I can do is give it my best shot and hope Lady Luck is on my side.

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) .
