It is so true! When my Mom fell and broke her femur a few years ago, I would take something to knit while I sat with her. She was almost 89 at the time and her memory was starting to fade. She was always interested in what I was doing. Even if she asked the same thing again, it was ok, as she was not thinking about other less happy things. So not only did it keep me from being over anxious and having more tension with my family, it gave her a little distraction also. I made 20 hats over that period of time to donate. I felt somewhat productive and calmer. A win for everyone!
