Dementia: Saved By Talk Talk

I’ve had to pull out all the stops today to distract and redirect Maureen from her distress following the visit by our Key Worker yesterday.  Then disaster struck when our phone line went down in the morning so no music via YouTube.  I have to hand it to Talk Talk they fixed the problem very quickly and Maeve was back on the screen and her Nana was singing along and clapping after every number:

What would really put the icing on the cake now is a phone call confirming that Maeve and her dad will be visiting us in Cleethorpes very soon!

I know I’m tempting fate by posting at this time as there is still possibly a long night ahead.  However, as Carers Week is drawing to a close I want to post about the importance of ‘Listening To Carers’ tomorrow.

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) .
