When a person has short-term memory loss, his life is made up of moments. We are not able to create a perfectly wonderful day with those who have dementia, but it is absolutely attainable to create perfectly wonderful moments that put smiles on their faces, a twinkle in their eyes, or trigger memories. Five minutes later, they wonâ€TMt remember what you did or said, but the feeling you left them with will linger. I have broken down the learning process into five sections. Within those sections are smaller steps. At the end of each step is a place where you can journal your thoughts, solutions, and treasures to help you achieve the overall goal of creating many moments of joy for the person with dementia, and for YOU!.
