Each time he went to a funeral, Gino Verani came away with a "santino," the traditional laminated card with a picture of the deceased on the front and a prayer on the back. Over the years he would slip them into two small cardboard boxes in a drawer in the living room of his house in San Fiorano - a town in northern Italy that was at the epicenter of the country's coronavirus pandemic - along with his watch, an outdated cellphone and his keys.By the time Verani died on Sept. 6 at the age of 88, he had collected nearly 150 "santini," so-called because they are similar to cards bearing images of Roman Catholic saints. Those cards depicting friends, and sometimes children of friends, became part of the many games his family devised to keep Verani's mind active against encroaching dementia during the national lockdown.REUTERS/Marzio Toniolo SEARCH "TONIOLO GRANDFATHER" FOR THIS STORY.

Toniolo, Prandini and Verani's grandson, said that the facility where Verani was taken, allowed family members to make video calls with a helper at the care home who would hold up an iPad. However, in Verani's room, the internet did not work, so his family had to resort to video messages. Toniolo said that the emotion and the certainty that his grandfather would not be able to understand, made this operation of making the video messages, disappointing.

Gino Verani is put on a stretcher as he is taken to hospital, after coming down with a fever, as his family stand around him, at his home in San Fiorano, Italy, August 23, 2020. Toniolo, Verani's grandson, said that while Verani was alone in bed on the ground floor, his condition got worse every day. He could not get up, and was almost always lying in bed. The confusion and agitation of the first period, due to immobility, gave way to a state of continuous numbness. When Verani came down with a fever, which Toniolo said was probably due to the air conditioning, they called health professionals to carry out checks and, as always, to exclude the risk that he had contracted COVID-19.

The Wider Image: Losing my grandfather to dementia during the pandemic
The nursing home, where Verani spent the last week of his life before he died, stands, during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, in Maleo, Italy, September 16, 2020. Due to the regulations put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and Verani having to quarantine for two weeks when he arrived, his family were not able to ever visit him before he died.

The Wider Image: Losing my grandfather to dementia during the pandemic
Each time he went to a funeral, Gino Verani came away with a "santino," the traditional laminated card with a picture of the deceased on the front and a prayer on the back. Over the years he would slip them into two small cardboard boxes in a drawer in the living room of his house in San Fiorano - a town in northern Italy that was at the epicenter of the country's coronavirus pandemic - along with his watch, an outdated cellphone and his keys.By the time Verani died on Sept. 6 at the age of 88, he had collected nearly 150 "santini," so-called because they are similar to cards bearing images of Roman Catholic saints. Those cards depicting friends, and sometimes children of friends, became part of the many games his family devised to keep Verani's mind active against encroaching dementia during the national lockdown.REUTERS/Marzio Toniolo SEARCH "TONIOLO GRANDFATHER" FOR THIS STORY.
