Dementia: On Target? (Week One)

Image result for on target picturesI have decided that setting some weekly targets is one way of seeing if I’m really doing a good job as a Care Partner for my wife. One a day seems a sensible starting point.  This weeks seven are:

  • To smile more and communicate clearly
  • To visit family in Coventry
  • To have a day out together
  • To go out and leave Maureen to her own devices for an hour on two separate occasions
  • To revise and dance our routines to the Cha Cha in our Lounge
  • To encourage Maureen to do crosswords or jigsaws
  • To attempt to resolve Maureen’s shortage of clothing

About Remember Me

I am a retired adult educator. My wife had a stroke in February 2014 and now has mixed dementia.

'Dharma For Dementia' is my approach to being Maureem's Care Partner: it aims to end the suffering of 'Prescribed Disengagement' (Swaffer) .

    A great list of targets to aim for. I imagine the last one is perhaps the most difficult to achieve. Good luck.
