    Very anguished call from Dad. Usual sequence from me about sit down, take your time etc.

    A few questions elicited the problem. He cannot find his biscuits! I hope he didn't also call the police about them.

  3. I've reached the point of saying the meal's probably been delayed but if it doesn't come soon, I expect someone will bring him a cuppa while he's waiting. It seems to work...for now.

    "I haven't had any chocolate!"

    - you've one piece now in your mouth

    "No. Can I have chocolate please?"

    - Ok just another piece....



    finished that...
    starting again...
     
  5. Dementia could be almost bearable if it provides an excuse for almost non-stop chocolate consumption. (I try to comfort myself with such things in the pessimistic expectation of being the next in line in my family to get dementia in due course.)
