Thanks for sharing your idea. I'm a visual designer and also involved in storytelling (or rather storymaking, via LARP, which stands for live action role play). I would like to stay in touch with you, and if I can, will offer assistance with concept and design, and also user testing with my mother who is a dementia sufferer. Jim

Jim commented on My Plea as One in Early Stage Dementia

Thank you Ssev. I echo your thoughts, having discovered more fun in my mother who suffers from dementia simply by being present in the moment with her and by responding to her, whether that be impromptu dancing in the kitchen or simply witnessing the small wonders in nature together, as I would with my young niece and nephew. I've also learned to smile when she uses the wrong words. These approaches have made my times with her far more enjoyable and have increased in my resilience and patience during trickier moments.
