Woman with Dementia Reconnects with Former Memories After Surprising Discovery at Thrift Store

64-year old Rose Hill was losing the only thing important in life: her memories. In a shocking twist of fate…they returned!


The Hillsborough, Oregon resident described her life as “gone,” adding that she didn’t know where to find it. Rose noticed it was difficult to recall simple details -what she wore yesterday, the name of the neighboring town, or what she was doing in the moment.

“I was rooting for them to find brain lesions or a brain tumor,” Hill recalled. “I wanted to know what was causing this because if you know what’s causing it maybe you can fix it – or make it better – or make it not hurt so bad.”
