What a great website, thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience! My dad is in long term care with Parkinson’s and dementia and is doing relatively well, but I’ve noticed he has a hard time situating himself in the year. For example, he often asks when Christmas is relative to today and then states that he doesn’t know why they had to change the order of things. I’m wondering if a full year-at-glance wall calendar might be a good idea to help him remember where he is in the year? Alyson

Hi Alyson, you are welcome to get him a calendar, but he will probably still ask. Time is very confusing to many people living with dementia. This is pretty normal, and it’s currently his “thing” that he asks about.
