Dementia is a painful rollercoaster
Dementia can be unpredictable. Dementia can be horrible. It's the rollercoaster that we're all on.
- Residents with dementia will leave their underwear in the fridge,
- Eat a whole pack of choccies in one sitting,
- Go missing from their room only to be found watching TV with a friend,
- And then not recognise themselves in the mirror
Cry. Laugh. Cry. Repeat.
St Vincent's is here for the hugs, tears and everything in between. Every win, every regression, every loss. We're not going anywhere.
