Dementia: It’s Working

Image result for It's Working Dementia Picture

I’m now sleeping upstairs at night following the removal of the single bed from our lounge.  Maureen still plays Musical Beds generally spending some of her time in the marital bedroom after an earlier stint on the sofa.  I initially take to the spare room and only join her following invitation.

There was a real bonus yesterday when Maureen told me she ‘had a young man in her bed on Thursday morning’.  I thought it would have been reckless to have mentioned this at the Best Interest Meeting a few hours later as  I didn’t want to risk any further ideas about the need for a Capacity Assessment on this front.

It’s clearly Maureen’s emotional memory that allows her to recall the events of  Thursday morning.  To be called a young man at the age of 71 is rather reassuring!
