"Out of clutter find simplicity; from discord find harmony; in the middle of difficulty lies opportunity," Albert Einstein.

What opportunity lies within the difficulty of living with dementia. Many, I would say. The opportunity to be kind and patient, despite episodes of contrariness. The opportunity to look for the good, instead of seeing what is going wrong. The opportunity to find ways to connect and have fun, within the difficulties of communication and immobility. The opportunity to find serenity within the discord of misremembering, difficulty doing tasks. The opportunity to make this a dignified journey.
