Dementia: Busy Day Ahead

Today’s To Do List:

  1. Carer (Chloe) to encourage Maureen to shower and wash her hair.
  2. To assist Maureen to put washing on the line.
  3. To convert our lounge to double as a bedroom for two.
  4. Confirmation of weekend Carer Sits.
  5.  Reclaim Chloe our most experienced carer for Monday morning.
  6. To progress deadlines from Carers Assessment E Mail.
  7. Play lots of music particularly Immortality and others on today’s Good Music page.
  8. Meditate
  9. Tai Chi in the garden.
  10. Gardening: tidy up borders and vegetable plot.

We’re already off to a flyer this morning with Maureen making her own coffee for the first time for a while.  I’m confident with prompting she will put washing on the line shortly.

One of the things I’m learning is to pick my moment: to know when to leave things until another time.
