We continued to look for ways to help Mom/Guppy stay connected with us during her time with Alzheimers. One suggestion was to create family place mats that she could use every day, that would remind her of children, grandchildren and those who couldn’t visit her regularly. Different families did different things, and They are still at the house, but I don’t yet have photos of them. I do have a photo of the one I made, using Shutterfly, to print photos onto a place mat like surface.
I remember seeing her often touch the pictures on this one and on the others made, making comments, almost stroking the faces lovingly. For a time, it was a great memory keeper!
