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 …
