    You Won't Know Anything Until You Know Everything: Things People With Dementia Say

    Here are some of the things patients have said. Sometimes the things that these innocent people say make you want to burst out laughing. Names have been changed to protect privacy (for obvious reasons). Dementia is a very sad thing, but those of us dedicated to the people who...

    I Took Granny Down!

    This week at work I was the talk of the hospital and somewhat of a hero for taking down a little old lady.  Yes, in my bizarro world overpowering the aged evidently elevates one to celebrity status.    It all began with unhallowed screams down a long hall...

    How I Got My Mother-in-law To Use Her Walker.

    My mother-in-law wouldn't use her walker even after a bad fall which resulted in her breaking her arm. My sister and I made a pretty, fitted pillow for hers. She started using it (probably because she felt guilty after we went to so much trouble lol) Soon, she went into assisted...
