Saying goodbye to Irene while dancing with dementia



This afternoon a few of us went to say goodbye to Irene who passed away recently. ┬áIrene was quite a character and was really good friends with Harry, a fellow resident. When I reminded Harry of the funeral and asked him if he wanted to go he said “Well I don’t remember her but if she was a friend then I would like to come”, which he did. What an elegant way of dancing with dementia!

This picture is of Irene and Harry sharing a cup of tea in her beloved DevonCourt Hotel across the road from us.
