Dementia can cause seniors to withdraw from activities, family and friends . . But maintaining those relationships and interests reduces the effects of severe cognitive impairment, leading to a better quality of life . . And it helps with great frens and kids too ☺️ thanks Esther & the boys 💓 #t4dementia

“Just a couple of ‘ol boys easing into Friday with a little Fats Waller playin’ on Phil’s new CD player. 🎶😎 Our morning routine looks nothing like it used to! With the hospital bed, we’re able to take advantage of periods of wakefulness, even if Phil’s not quite ready (or willing) to get up for the day. 🌝 So we do all our a.m. cares (and sometimes even have breakfast) in stages while he’s sitting up in bed, in between cat-naps. And 2-3 hours later, he’s up and walking (with walker & gait belt) to the living room for the remainder of the day! 🏃♂️ Our “leisurely mornings” have resulted in good moods all around! And Phil has only spent 1 whole day in bed recently, which is great!👍 PS: I wish we would have gotten that hospital bed when we started hospice 6 months ago. I put it off because *I* felt it meant the end was near & he would become a “patient.” Ya know what I mean? But now I realize how HELPFUL they are to providing quality care & comfort! So take my advice & *accept* that hospital bed sooner rather than later” – Louise Thank you for sharing your experience @louiseshapiro 💜
