November 16, 2012, was the day our best wasn’t good enough, and Mom was taken from her home. Like everyone who lives wth dementia, Mom deserved to be treated with dignity and respect and to be provided ongoing opportunities to engage life in whatever way she could until the day she died. She loved to be active, involved, singing, dancing, and interacting with others. Her lively spirit and sense of humour are so much in evidence in these videos taken on the day she went into a nursing home. We need to change the way we care for people who live with dementia. They deserve better than what they’re getting.
