Kingwood memory care facility helps 88-year-old resident capture Seventeen glamour shot – Houston Chronicle

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. Through the years, she would share the story of her fashion shoot and the tattered clipping from the magazine with her seven children, 20 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren. […] 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. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 5 million Americans are living with the disease, and two-thirds of those are women. Silverado residents have varying degrees of memory impairment. Mohr knew this was a big deal, as her daughter, Lynn Lucas, and Pegross helped her into a pair of black rain boots. Mohr was a stay-at-home mother most of her life and later worked in administration at the Houston Police Department.
