she loves her care team
Grandma has such great conversations when staff come in to take care of her.
She thinks of them as friends. They know her story, and understand what her life has been like.
While isolated during lock-down Dad's care team soothed him by talking about the things that he loved the most.
"His collage is the real focal point in Paul’s room. It has already done what it is supposed to do, initiate conversation and reminiscing. Brilliant idea!" (Paul's wife)
Mum's memory care
"The photo of Nono and Nona's wedding gets Mum's attention, she'll name every figure... recount the entire wedding party person by person with all the stories, then do another lap or two."
"She loves that poster!"
“Mom looks at the poster like she’s watching a film–every day, every photo and the narratives to go with each one!"
"Such a great gift that brings Mom so much happiness"
As Mary's dementia progressed, a year later I asked if she still engages with her collage.
“She certainly does Sylvia! It’s a huge memory and mood booster for her!”

We were very excited to present the collage to our grandmother. She told us that she's always proud to display photos of her family; with this collage she can showcase pieces of her own story.
I just want to thank you for doing such a fine job of making Paul’s reminisart. It is the real focal point in Paul’s room. It has already done what it is supposed to do—initiated conversation and reminiscing.
I’m speechless. It’s amazing. I thought in my mind's eye of what the final product would look like, but it's way more powerful and thoughtful.
