Artist's Statement: The Alzheimer's patient often develops paranoia because they have trouble accurately deciphering the world around them. Since it is difficult for the patient to follow conversations and to recall, the individual becomes suspicious of what they don't understand. Misplaced objects become stolen and small actions can become threatening. This quilt depicts the patient reflecting doubt, and depression and wondering if the outdoor environment she enjoys will also become a threat.

Dedication: To Mom...who proved she was not paranoid when she reported her wedding ring stolen. A person with a ring cutter dressed as a caregiver removed it.
