This large format book is designed for people with Alzheimer's Disease or other conditions that cause dementia. The high quality images and short texts make it ideal for sharing with family and carers. It will appeal to those who have an interest in animals and relationships with pets.
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 who may remember their pets and their relationships with pets whether a goldfish or something more challenging and need a prompt to help them talk about it. 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. Arranged in a clear and easy to understand format, the book is recommended for those with dementia by the Reading Well, Books on Prescription scheme in England.
"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"
