Yesterday a 96 year old resident stopped my 9 year old niece in the lounge area and demanded loudly, ( as she is inclined to do), the usual question.
"What time is the bus coming, what time should this bus arrive, is this the right bus stop?"
My niece answered,"I'm not sure what time it is coming, but I am waiting for the same bus, wait with me".
Upon which the senior lady sat down happily, chatting to my niece and completely forgot all her " bus" woes.
Apparently at 9 years old my niece understands the concept of the Alzheimer's world.
