Person giving quote

"My mother was diagnosed with dementia, I have been able to explore some really interesting things with her through these conversations such as her interest in singing. We recently had a conversation about soup and I encouraged her to make some soup with me. Her confidence has really grown since we’ve been having these conversations. It’s given me the confidence to talk more."
