Hi All, This is my first post and just finding your site. I currently care for my Mom who is 87 and has been in the begging stages of dementia for the past year. Needless to say, it has been difficult, but I know I'm preaching to the choir here. Luckily, she doesn't roam, turn on the oven, and it still continent. She has short term memory loss and constantly asks what is going on. She has appeared to have forgotten almost everything about her life outside her house and rarely talks. I haven't been able to get her involved in anything. She has just become totally introverted. The night before last my Son called and said he was putting something together for his 'Nana' and wanted me to send pictures of her, he also asked her favorite song, which is Stardust by Nat King Cole. Anyway, he put together the most lovely video of her life. When I showed it to her, it seemed to spark something in her memory. For the past 2 days, since she has seen it, she is talking, playing the piano again, knows birthdays that are coming up, wanting to start up quilting again, and just being the Mom I knew before all of this happened. Has this happened to anyone else? Is it possible for any kind of recovery from this? I'm trying not to hold out a lot of hope because I've been up and down so much this past year, but even if it ends tomorrow, I sure am grateful for what I am having now with her.
