Dementia: Positive Changes

I have made some significant changes in my approach to being Maureen’s Care Partner:

  • I’m no longer going to make my escape as soon as carers arrive on our doorstep.  Our ‘Girls’ as Maureen calls them need to be seen as part of the family.
  • I have reduced the time I spend on Social. Media significantly
  • I  have used YouTube for early morning meditation:

  • I have returned to in-house Tai Chi using this routine:

  • I am using the local Branch of the Alzheimer’s Society for support.
  • Girl Wednesday Night has now been recruited into our extended family.

It is crucial to keep my role under review as we continue on this challenging journey.


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) .
