Dad was moved last week from a single room to a double in the facility where he’s living. He was hardly ever in his room and the change will save a substantial amount of money each month. For now, Dad doesn’t even have a roommate.
My mom and sister were emptying out Dad’s closet to take his clothes to the new room. Much of his wardrobe had “gone missing,” which is not that unusual in a dementia unit.
In the back of Dad’s closet, Mom found a lovely evening gown. “Oh my,” Mom wondered. “I wonder to whom this belongs?”
“I’ll bet it’s from the dress up box in the TV room,” my sister answered.
So they took the evening gown back to the dress up box and there, they found some of Dad’s missing clothes.
So so sad…but you have to laugh!
