    I said to my mother you look like you have seen a ghost. She says "I am a ghost" and laughed.

    creepy but funny.

    The woman has severe alzheimers but comes out with this stuff.

    My Mum is in end stage Alzheimers and mostly non verbal. She says the odd word clear as anything but if she does say much more it’s incoherent.

    The other week, I was telling her that my 22yo son had gone on holiday.
    She said... a bit jumbled but you could still make it out “ Hes looking for a girlfriend” I almost fell off my chair :eek:

    then yesterday when I was getting Mum something to drink I said
    “ Here Mum, I’ve got some whisky for you” :p she screwed up her face and said “ No whisky” and laughed and pretended to hit my arm :) This is a typical Mum reaction that I haven’t seen for years :p

    Today there was some piano backing music on Endeavor (the detective TV series) and mum suddenly started playing an imaginary piano and grinning! One of the lighter moments.

    My mum brought my nan over to my house the other day (think she was at her wits end and wanted me to distract my nan for a bit). She was enamored with my house rabbits, but being the anti social blighters they are, they wouldn't come over to let her stroke them. So she declared we all needed to "Make a noise like a cabbage leaf". My grandad laughed so much his teeth fell out

    After his shower I sat John on the bed and gave him a towel to dry his feet. He seemed to be struggling a bit and said he couldn’t find them. I laughed and told him they were at the end of his legs. “So they are. I thought they were further away”!

    Dear Marion,

    I think you should have asked him what he thought were on the ends of his legs!

    My mum came out with a classic last night, asking me if I had seen her clean up in the living room while I was upstairs. I still haven’t come up with a good answer

    My mum found an old picture of herself today. She showed it to me and I said whose that. She looked at me like I was mad and said it’s me silly she’s got lovely dark curly it’s a shame she’s dead now!

    Try asking her if she saw you clean the upstairs whilst she cleaned the downstairs!

    I love that - in fact that’s the damn cleverness of these diseases. In the week of all the disagreements over the best jokes from the Festival and Fringe your Nan gets the prize, unwitting though it may be. Xx

    My mother will often call me a man-shes obviously confused and I have a sense of humour about it. I often say to my sister I better start wearing dresses and doll myself up a bit!

    Anyway, The other day she asked me my name. She laughed and I said "that's a girls name!"

    Mum came into the kitchen today and said “I’m not working”, meaning she was confused. Bless

    Dad said
    “That kangaroos just jumped out of the window”
    I replied
    “Yep they tend to do that!”

    Last month he said whilst sitting in a room full of female care home residents
    “ have you noticed that all the women in here have big bottoms ?”

    What do you say to that.....

    Years ago, a friend who was a local policeman answered a call from a very distressed old lady who had reported that there was a giant mouse in her garden. Turned out it was a kangaroo!

    Dear Rob,

    I am a Violinist and one of my funniest memories of when I first played the Violin in my late dad's care home was of
    me starting to play and the carer bringing escorting dad to a chair but instead of him sitting down to listen he
    was motioning to me to sit down in an armchair and somehow keep playing. Also in another recital dad joined in by
    dancing but two other residents, no-dementia, started arguing because resident B felt resident E was out of tune.
