Cognition

I’ve been spending all day, everyday this week with truly lovely elderly ladies who are losing memories and abilities. They are all very nervous to come to their appointments, very agitated and worried. I can make them feel calm – this is probably my best life skill (maybe too strong a skill, when I can’t bring myself to be frank about what the future may hold). But being present when someone learns that they may be slowing losing their mind and personality is not an easy thing in which to partake.
