  1. This reminds me of my visit with my mom last weekend. Per the social worker’s suggestion, I brought old photos to show Mom. She reacted with joy. And she identified the people in the photos, including herself at age four. Her short term memory is awful. But her long term memory, wow. I am so grateful to that social worker for the suggestion because I was able to bring joy to Mom and have a really good visit with her.
