Last week ITV broadcasted the second part of Ross Kemp’s brilliant documentary about living with Dementia. Having treasures such as Babs Windsor and her husband highlighting the reality of how this disease steals away our loved ones is great in supporting awareness. Well worth watching on catch up if missed.
Equally, Naughty Boy speaking on Lorraine about his own experience with his mother who was 64 when diagnosed will reach another generation. He spoke from the heart and discussed the power of music saying when playing music to his own mother it proved how we again get to see ‘a glimpse of someone’.
Positive and happy interaction with somebody with dementia lifts their moods, engages them and allows them to contribute and feel involved. Please keep communicating and keep your loved one’s spirits raised and cherish their memories that they are still able to share.
