Journey Through Dementia

Journey Through Dementia

Thursday, March 24, 2016


I came across one of her photo albums yesterday and transferred about 50 pictures into a little 4x6 size album, one picture per page.  What a great idea.  She looked through it and then again and then again.  She must have looked through it 6 times, each time seeing it as something new.  There is one picture of her and Fred in there that apparently she doesn't like and each time she pointed to it and said she didn't like it.

I also included a picture of the mobile home and pictures of the living room and den and the first two times through she would stop at that picture and ask what it was.  The third time shes looked at it and said "I think I lived here once."

The funniest thing, though, was that the very last picture I included was the one I took of her with Jeri last week.  She had been commenting on how young everyone looked and how old they are now and when she came to that picture she said "she still looks the same, though."

Anyway, it was a great idea and actually kept her busy for half an hour!
