Have I got Dementia?

I'd like to show my friend my room,
Where is my room?
Which number is it?

Its down the corridor
on the left hand side
It has number 2 on the door
Do you remember?

Yes, thank you.

I'd like to show my friend my room,
Where is my room?
Which number is it?

Its down the corridor
on the left hand side
It has number 2 on the door
Do you remember?

Yes, thank you.

I'd like to show my friend my room,
Where is my room?
Which number is it?

Its down the corridor
on the left hand side...
Shall I come with you
we can find it together.
Here it is, number 2.

This isn't my room
These aren't my things.
Where is my room ...
