Dementia: Totally Bemused

Image result for Totally Bemused elderly woman pictureMaureen seems totally bemused this morning.  It isn’t unusual if she is unsure who I am but when she is failing to recognise her late daughter from the usual photograph that’s  a significant change in her presentation.  I’m not sure from her comments if she remembered who The Songbird was when I played her normal set on YouTube this morning and she’s the ‘Special One’ as far as grandchildren are concerned.

Our builders have prepared well for today’s deluge.  They managed to summon a roofer to make sure that the rain won’t get in this morning.  Getting him here at short notice was no picnic but a relatively straightforward challenge compared to what I might face today.  Thankfully, the rain brings room for optimism: the absence of workmen could help Maureen to settle down a little!
