“To learn about the leaf the flower” Krishnamurti

We’re happy to share the first poem Cherry wrote!
Cherry has Vascular Dementia, and despite her progressive cognitive decline, she has such a bright and lively soul and an extraordinary sense of humour!
During our sessions, in a supportive and inclusive environment, different music, specifically chosen, helped her evoke words, feelings and thoughts that resulted in this small poem.
With this post, we want to share the inside world of Cherry, in the hope also to increase the understanding and awareness, as well as challenging stereotypes and common misconceptions about Dementia.
