This form of “Dementia Whispering” seems to be a bonding exercise that can really bring life to those who suffer from the disease. I mean of course you would probably only do this with a family member or friend that you have a very close connection with. This is definitely more of a holistic way of not treating (because you can’t treat it) but rather dealing with it. All of my teenage life I worked in a retirement home and enjoyed EVERYTHING about it. I learned so much from listening to the stories, experiences, life lessons, (war stories and scars were great) that the folks would share. I consider myself grateful to have been able to listen to that last story or received that last smile from some.
