Business as usual for Doreen

Pictured below is the lovely Doreen, who has been living at Trevu House (Gawler East, SA) for the past 10 years.

Doreen is one of our residents at Trevu who is living with dementia. Prior to this, she used to manage a large finance office.

Last week, she offered to assist Lynn (our Home Manager) with folding brochures, and quickly showed that she was an expert! Following this, Doreen then began communicating with visitors at the reception desk, greeting them, discussing the weather and engaging in general ‘office banter’.

It was terrific to watch Doreen living her life as usual.
