Day Five
dementia action week 2022

grandpa was a chemist

This piece reflects my appreciation for my brilliant and deeply flawed grandparents whose long lives eventually faded into the shadows of grandmother’s dementia.

Zoom With My Mother

Knows I belong to her
though not quite certain
how, she peers at the screen;
then smiles, reaches out
a tissue paper hand to try and
touch my face.
“Hello, sweetheart,”she says.
