Granma has been living with Dementia for around a year. For the longest time, she couldn't remember the name of animals, family members, everyday things. She would always, and still does, call Salmon 'Pink Fish'. However, she was put on a new tablet to combat the illness that harness the use of Welsh Daffodils and she rarely forgets now.
