I want to share something that I experienced today just to see what you think about it and perhaps come up with explanations for it.
I can't go into fine detail about people and places because I work as a carer in a home for the elderly and it would be against my code of conduct to
reveal exact details about real people, so I will try to explain what happened as best I can within these restrictions.
The place is a home for elderly residents, most of them are round about 80 years old. Many suffer from dementia and are physically infirm.
Mrs B lived in room 9 and all the time I knew her (6 months) she never left her room. She would sometimes halucinate and talk about people in her
room, but nobody paid much attention.
Sadly Mrs B passed away about 3 weeks ago, and her room has been vacant since then.
In the next room to her, room 10, lives Mrs C. She is able to leave her room and join other residents, she is very hard of hearing and doesn't see
well either. In the 6 months I've worked there she has not spoken to Mrs B. A few weeks ago due to certain things Mrs C started to stay in her room
and not come out. And thats how it is now.
Today I went into to see Mrs C and give her a cup of tea. She said to me there was a baby in her bed. Clearly there was no baby in her bed, so I just
moved on changed the subject and shortly after left. The same thing happened later when I went to see her with something else, she talked about a baby
in her bed.
I mentioned this to another staff member and she told me some weird things. First she told me that Mrs B in room 9 used to talk about a baby in her
bed, but then she died. And only since she died has Mrs C in the next room has started saying the same thing.
It turns out that a few years ago another woman who lived in room 10 also talked about a baby in her bed.
These ladies suffer from dementia and confusion. They don't communicate fully with anyone, let alone each other, and even if they did they wouldn't
remember anything about it.
Now I've also heard that the building which was built 14 years ago was built on a site which was long long ago a burial ground and the builders had
to dig down and move human remains before construction began.
Whether that is significant I don't know.
Does anyone have any theories as to what is going on, are there similar cases, or is it all just a coincidence and not worth bothering about.
Certainly got me thinking anyway, and next time I'm on night shift I'm going to be #ting myself going in to check on on Mrs C, but I have a vivid
Any thoughts or advice appreciated.
