Tips for…
Life at home – Keeping occupied

Take photographs of your garden and tubs now, so next Spring you will know what you have. You can make notes too.

What helps me is plenty of reading and alcohol-free lager – just the best invention. I can drink it all day long and still not get pissed!

I can’t write out my music, but I just compose it and then forget about it. And it’s never the same the next time. It’s hugely liberating in a way. (Listen to Valerie Blumenthal’s Dementia Diary here.)

Chris plays a brass instrument. “Music has become more difficult, but I still do it.” Watch this short film ‘Dementia is my Kriptonite’ by Chris Norris here.

Nick has aphasia. He collects miserichords. Watch the film ‘Nick’s Miserichord’s here.

I play the mouth organ and am part of a singing group. Watch the film ‘That’s me by’ Trevor Aykroyd here.

Do you have a 'Tip' you would like to share?
