Dementia: Controlling Our Mind

I share Buddhist teachings on Sunday’s.

The following lesson seems particularly relevant to Care Partners:


Maureen struggled with her clothing yesterday; particularly her underwear.  She kept hoisting her trousers up towards her bust and at one time tried a belt for even higher  support,  I’m hoping Girl Sunday might be able to give some helpful direction when she arrives at noon.

Despite a diagnosis of severe dementia there are times when Maureen’s intelligence and intellect shine through.  I had to smile when I put Strictly Come Dancing on last night when Maureen said: ‘the ladies are making fools of themselves by revealing so much flesh and the dancing isn’t much good either’.  This was my cue to switch over to YouTube to spend another evening watching our current favourite in action!
