Hi mARToons fan!


What better way to ring in the xmas season than a funny look at dementia.


I visited my mom in a dementia ward last summer in New Zealand.


For 89 days I paid her and the dozen or so other residents a 1-2 hour visit.


I went into the whole thing filled with horror … that I’d be trapped in a locked ward with a group of psychopaths.


But as normal, my real-life experience quickly dispelled that media-fed nonsense.


I had a lot of enjoyable visits and some hilarious moments came out of them.


So here they are – a dozen of my impressions of the trials, tribulations and mindset of someone with dementia.


Day One: Dementia folks move slow … real s-l-o-w …
