Lots of truth in here about aging and your MC seems to have come full circle by the end of the story. Dementia is a sad disease, but you handled this tactfully.
I was with your MC in her surprise over the directs comments concerning the residents. But, I can see the logic in the director's thinking and agree that respect is the key. I enjoyed your MC's bit of humor, with her own hat. :)
Good job and the content was on point. Sad but true.
I love the connection from when she was the young, college graduate to when she had to move to the nursing home. It's good to see her in both places in her life. I like the mention of the deordorizing system and the mention of the hat that she now wears. You did a great job of showing us how her attitude has changed over the years.
The undeniable truth. Congratulations on placing.
Sad but true... it happens to everyone. I'm glad you were able to inject humor into the story, as well! Good job--congratulations!
Good job! Hat's off to you!
