Thread Name: Entertaining dementia patients
Subject: RE: Entertaining dementia patients
I'm 65 - if I get to the dementia phase - shoot me or play me some Coltrane/Charles Gayle - skip the cute stories, prissy well-meaning folk songs and the rest of it. My mother had dementia, died a couple of years back at the age of 84 and would rather have had jazz, Frank Sinatra and a lot of rock and roll given the choice. I doubt that she was unique.
