Title: Move over, Bob
Post by: geoffnelder on November 08, 2017, 10:14:31 AM
Visiting pa-in-law Bob at his dementia care home. Asked him how he was and he pulled a long face and said it time they let him return to America. He's never been out of England except with us on holidays in Spain so maybe he meant that. I asked if he'd like to go on holiday to Spain with us again?
"Not flipping likely," he said, "not with you wearing shoes like that."
I looked down. Sure enough both shoes, though black, were odd.
"Move over Bob, time I joined you."
At last he wore a big smile. "You can have my room," he says, "I'm going to Scotland to see my houses."
Um, he's never been to Scotland either...
All that was a few days ago. Yesterday we went back. One of the care workers came over. "Are you the man who wore odd shoes on Sunday?"
S'truth, do they have a newsletter?

Maybe not a newsletter, but they do talk to each other.  I guess they're as interested in the families as they are the residents.
