I'm helping with a Care Plan for a friend (74) who has Dementia - mostly short-term memory loss - long term is there but often inaccurate or embellished. The problem/blessing is that she is smart and physically in great condition (strong, walks, runs, jumps) but has zero attention span. Puzzles, TV, board games are not possible. She likes to be helpful, but that takes more of the caregivers time than the task warrants. She has a strong sense that she is a burden to family and friends and wants desperately to "give back." Keeping up with her is burdensome - but not something her friends or caregiver imply - just her feeling. We're trying to find ways to bring structure to her days such that her time is used doing anything but worrying about her condition. All ideas welcome.
