A husband's concern that his wife whom suffers from dementia would be confused in their new home came up with a unique idea; he replicated the new home identical to the old England home, according to the Daily Mail on Sept. 23.
75-year-old Matt Muircroft lived in Berkshire with his wife, Julie, for thirty years before he decided to move to another town. Due to his wife's medical condition, he wanted to be closer to family.
Unfortunately, he was told this move would be a huge change in the surroundings and could cause anxiety and confusion for his wife.
This change was not a problem for Matt as he is a former decorator. He used his trade skills to replicate the new home exactly as the previous one, down to the color schemes, ornaments and even the positions of the photographs.
A representative of Alzheimer Scotland, Arlene Crocket said what Matt did for his wife is an example of someone “going the extra mile for a loved one.”
Matt humbly replied that helping his wife cope with her medical condition is currently his main focus. He added that the replication of the former home was the most important job in his life.
