Joke Of The Day For Dementia Patient Caregivers

“My father is in late stages Alzheimer’s and as many other caregivers know, they repeat the same stories from their past over & over again. One thing that we have started to do in my family, to ease daily tension of caregiving and that makes us giggle. Is to quiz one another about his stories. Of course one problem with that is that his stories sometimes drastically changes. So then, we have to say “okay which story line?”.. lol”
