When someone has dementia, traditional books can become incomprehensible and meaningless. This title from the popular range of Pictures to Share books is designed to be accessible and entertaining for anyone with mid to later stage dementia. With curious, surreal and comic pictures this book will be sure to raise smiles and laughter. Designed to take the reader back to days that may still be fresh in their minds. All the images are powerful and easy to understand, and prompt lots of memories and discussion between those with Alzheimer's or other dementia and their family, friends and carers. Even when people with dementia can no longer hold a conversation they will enjoy looking through the book and studying the pages.
This is one of Pictures to Share highly acclaimed and respected series of titles for people with dementia. Independently recommended by professionals and family carers.
"My father has limited speech so now makes little verbal response to pictures but body language, smiles and counting indicate enjoyment. I think this book is excellent and my regret is that I didn't know about them earlier"
