Dementia:Getting Out Of My Sick Bed


Image result for Getting Out Of My sick Bed Male Picture

I have chosen to get out of my sick bed to attend today’s Best Interest Discussion.

Yesterday, I was informed that the meeting would go ahead even if I wasn’t there.

Today, it’s a different story and the meeting could be rearranged.

However, procrastination is the thief of time and there are plans to be made.

Once Maureen has recovered from her infection she needs to move into Residential Care.

Just to be on the safe side I have asked an advocate to accompany me at the meeting.



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) .

    I took an advocate when I fought the Hospital Board when they tried to move my Mum. Good to know someone is in your corner. Good luck, stay strong
