... and doesn't really have meaning in Alzheimer's World.
By Bob DeMarco
Alzheimer's Reading Room
In the video below you will notice that Dotty is still saying NO even as she has her feet in the water at the pool. Still says she is not going in, even though she is already in.
You will also notice she says NO, all the way to the pool.
I learned, thanks to Dotty, that the word NO is not very meaningful in Alzheimer's World. In fact, I learned how to ignore it, and lead with a smile, my hand, and mouth shut.
And, away we went.
