She’s a new nurse at this nursing facility, and the patient under her care is slowly losing his memory. He has dementia, like all the others admitted into this home, and is unable to care for himself.
He’s slowly stripped of his memory, his self, forgetting his sense of place and time. She tries to make him comfortable as he approaches his last days.
With a single touch of a button, she could wipe away all his pain and unhappy memories, replacing it with artificially created fantasies.
It was all she could offer, but one of them would not be resting in peace.
