Like many of you have experienced or are experiencing, Alex's mother (Dorothy) is in memory care. Dee has settled in very well but truly lives in the moment. Alex made the quilt of Dee's house years ago and it hung in the livingroom. It is now with Dee in her new home and it is one of the things her memory has retained. The other day as Capt'n John sat with her, she pointed at the quilt and said, "I love that quilt. That is my house." Alex made the quilt for Dee's 60 birthday over 32 years ago. The house was an old home that was rebuilt by her father. It is now a Historic House in town.
Comfort, familiarity, and connection mean a lot at this stage of life. Maybe there is a small wall hanging that you have made or could make that would be a comfort to your loved ones?
(Plus it is pinned to the wall and is the one thing she hasn't lost.)
