The Serenity Prayer above makes me wonder if I can persuade Maureen to try ‘Singing For the Brain’ if it is on today. The other option is to suggest she accompanies me to the swimming baths this afternoon. Both of these activities are an attempt to encourage her to socialise rather than lying on the sofa dwelling on her poor short-term memory.
We are back into the old routine of morning carer sits this week. Unfortunately, there are two new faces on the schedule this week and I want to avoid such changes causing Maureen distress. I will contact our Care Agency this morning to explore the possibilities of using carers that Maureen knows, likes, and provide the stimulation that she needs.
