Dementia Poem of the Day

mothertheresa

Remember these words when helping people with dementia – You’ll be amazed at the difference it will make to them and their lives.

I CAN STILL SMELL THE FLOWERS

I CAN STILL COMMUNICATE

I CAN STILL MAKE DECISIONS

I CAN STILL WASH MY FACE

I CAN STILL SING

I CAN STILL MOVE MY BODY

YOU ARE MY LIFELINE. I DEPEND ON YOU. BUT PLEASE DON’T DO FOR ME WHAT I CAN DO FOR MYSELF.

RECOGNISE WHAT I CAN DO & HELP ME FUNCTION AS A PERSON.

YOU ARE KEY TO THE QUALITY OF MY LIFE
