Kingwood memory care facility helps 88-year-old resident capture Seventeen glamour shot
Houston Chronicle, July 1, 2017, Kingwood, TX— Alzheimer's had robbed much of Mohr's memory, but there was something familiar as she slipped on a trench coat, similar to one she wore at age 17 for a Boston Store advertisement. The ad ran in Seventeen magazine in 1945. It was her 15 minutes of fame...Now at age 88, Mohr was in the spotlight again, thanks to the staff of Silverado Kingwood Memory Care...Recreating a special memory like Mohr's is a way to celebrate a life when the memory fades, said Sabrina Pegross, Silverado administrator and dementia-care specialist. 'These are people who have lived such rich and wonderful lives. Now, to suffer with a memory impairment, dignity is a big deal for them. So we want to celebrate all of the good things that have happened in their lives, and we want to create those memories continuously today,' she said."
