Thread Name: BS: Dementia tips for carers
Subject: RE: BS: Dementia tips for carers
This is a great thread, thankyou to all who've posted advice. My mum is 2 years into a diagnosis so all these tips are invaluable both for now and for future deterioration.
Im particularly interested in music keeping a dementia sufferer active mentally. Folk song is something I thought my mum knew nothing about but turns out English schoools used to teach a lot (she was a primary age teacher as well as obviously a pupil herself). Its a great area we can share. I was thinking of posting a thread about songs taught via the BBC in British school in the 1950's onwards unless anyone knows of a similar resource? Sorry if this may cause thread drift...
