Pauline, the residential home manager is meeting Brian, whose partner Bill has dementia, and is now being cared for there.
[B]Brian, we think that Bill is settling down so well. He seems to be content and we like having him here. He likes having attention and its lovely that he still recognises you.
Brian, you are such a good partner to him and everyone knows that. Don't be afraid to show your affection. Hold him and kiss him whenever you want; he needs it. Your love is just as real as that of the other couples here. So don't be anxious about it. OK?[/B]
