    Saw this on the BBC website:

    Given that so many people with dementia in care homes are left to sit in their chair in front of the tv for most of the day, I thought this was interesting.

    I think it is a great idea and what I love about it, almost anyone can do it.

    Sadly its too late for my mum. Hopefully your CH will consider it. Far too many just let the residents sit in front of a tv all day, and little else.
