Read Wendy’s insightful ideas and advice about how we with dementia may behave. Accept it please. Any time of year.
From all those with dementia:
Don’t be offended if I get your name wrong this Christmas – what does it matter
Don’t be offended if I put the wrong names on the wrong parcel – it’ll make opening them all the more fun
Don’t keep correcting me if I get things wrong – does it matter?
Don’t be offended if I can’t join in the constant chatter – if you don’t all speak at once I’ll find it easier.
Don’t be offended if I want a bit of peace and quiet
Don’t be offended if I can’t keep up with all the games and quizzes as I can’t think of the answers quick enough.
Don’t be offended if I can’t watch a film all the way through without losing the plot or falling asleep
