A Distant Memory

By Julia Hadji-Stylianou ARPS

My grandmother has had dementia for over a year now, and is sadly continuing to deteriorate quite rapidly. Sometimes she laughs about it, sometimes she cries and gets very angry. This is a portrait of her and my pet bird sitting on her shoulder. She has seen my pet bird countless times, but never remembers. Meeting my pet bird is a new experience for her every time.
