Dementia Awareness

Grandma Shirley lives in a memory care unit where they do a lot of really neat activities with the residents. Last week a group of kids came visiting and they had a painting day, kinda like those wine painting parties, but I think minus the wine. ;)  The pictures are going to be displayed at a local grocery store next week to promote dementia awareness. This is Grandma with her beautiful painting.  She was always artistic and I am so glad that she still has the opportunity to express that side of herself. When I saw her and said I wanted to take her picture with her picture she didn't remember painting it, but she did in the moment.  And that is where people with dementia live, in the moment. So thankful that where she lives they understand that.
