Get a sheet of paper, a pencil and a mirror. Looking into the mirror only, draw a house. Do this with the hand you do not usually use. Using the same method, draw a clock with the correct time. This exercise gives you some idea of what the world might seem like to a person with dementia. What did it feel like to draw through the mirror? What can you do to reduce the risks of dementia later in life? What are some personality traits that would be helpful in old age? What are some personality traits that would be less helpful?
