The story behind Timeless Presents

Hi, we're Sharon and Chris Daltrey. The Timeless Presents dementia journey started one spring afternoon. My Dad had Alzheimer’s, the most common cause of Dementia. One day, we were in the car together, I was driving when he suddenly exclaimed ‘Oh! Look at the flowers on the trees!’ He had forgotten that trees blossom in the spring and had been moved by the unexpected display all along the road. It could have been a moment of sadness for me but I saw them through his eyes, as though for the first time, and shared his wonder. Reflecting on this moment in subsequent days I made a decision, that I would take the journey with him, that perhaps there might be other moments of joy on the way. Over time his vocabulary decreased, and the number of things he had to say diminished, but he didn’t lose the desire to communicate. As he progressed into the later stages he moved to a care home. Communication became harder and visits didn’t offer much joy. We had been told that memories were generally lost in reverse order, that the newest memories were the first to be lost but the earliest ones would remain longest. We recognised that familiar activities from his childhood might engage him, so we tried again to look at the world through his eyes. We looked for activities that would be instinctively familiar from childhood, that would require little or no explaining and bought him presents based on this idea. This part of our journey inspired many more moments of fun, connection and love. With Timeless Presents we want to share the things we learnt. It's our sincere hope that with these gifts you too can find moments of shared joy with those people in your life who have dementia.  ​ Sharon & Chris Daltrey ​ PS. We are committed to donating 10% of the profit from each sale to charities searching for a cure for different dementia's. ​
