About this title


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 earlier stage dementia who may enjoy poetry and images that are sad, inspirational and comforting and need a prompt to help them talk about it. The range of beautiful and powerful pictures and short texts combines the magic of poetry with a selection of beautiful paintings and photography. 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. Arranged in a clear and easy to understand format.
