Dementia Can Be Beautiful

Presentation Description

MJ Grant of Sanford took her mother, who is deaf and battling dementia, to a nearby beach and recorded video of their sign language conversation in the car. ... “Dementia can be beautiful,” Grant wrote about the exchange. “Within the confusion there can be such beauty and sweet little surprises.” You can watch that video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfuRftccTTY
 
Join MJ and her mother in this session as they share their journey and hope for the future, challenging us to think about the sensory impacts of dementia.
