Dementia: It’s Good To Be Back Home

Maureen is in hysterics after being brought back home by Pat this morning.  Our 85 year old neighbour caught her as she was out for her stroll; grabbed her by the arm and marched her back to me.  Pat isn’t supposed to go out on her own as she has dementia. Thankfully Maureen has seen the funny side of her adventure: it’s good to be safely back home in Cleethorpes after our day trip to Coventry  yesterday.
