Memory Lane Games

There’s an article in the business section of the Independent today about an app called Memory Way Games. A lot of its programmes are free. It helps Carers and other family members have conversations with someone with dementia. I remember when we visited my MIL. It could be really hard. Luckily our dog really helped. This app might be worth trying.

I need to be *very* careful with anything that brings lost memories to the fore as my OH becomes so distressed by what he's forgotten. He lives very much 'in the now' and recalling times past can end badly. :(

I’ve not seen the article @B72 but I had a look around wondered if this is the app -


It looks interesting.

Yes, I think it is. But I can send you a link to the article, if you’d like.
