This book is 48 pages long and hardback with colour and black and white illustrations, plus text.

As the dementia journey progresses, communication with the person for whom you are caring becomes a significant challenge due to confusion caused by changes in the brain. When this occurs, it is difficult to know how to reach out and make a connection yet neglecting to do so can cause the individual to become bored, lonely or isolated. All of which can have a negative impact on their overall health and wellbeing.

Reminiscence therapy is a wonderful way of inspiring conversation and can be a very powerful tool when caring for someone with dementia. While they may not necessarily be able to correctly identify familiar faces, pictures from times gone by can inspire very vivid memories to be shared. Engaging in this type of activity may improve the mood of the individual, encourage positive feelings of self-identity and allow you to learn something about them that you did not know before.

If you’re looking for something to help raise a smile or lighten a mood of the person for whom you are caring then this book is for you. When they no longer recognize family photographs, and are less able to hold a conversation, this book may provide an enjoyable activity.

Expert Reviews

  • Mr. James Ashwell, Founder of Unforgettable
    A useful book which is beautifully designed

    Mr. James Ashwell, Founder of Unforgettable

    When Mum was in the later stages of dementia and conversation became more limited I often struggled to connect with her. I could imagine using a beautiful book like this to stimulate a conversation. Although it's essentially a picture book, it doesn't look - or feel - like a book for children, it also contains some moving quotes to make you think about things, which I know Mum would have liked.

Interesting pictures and text

As the cover page and description were the only things to go on, I felt these misled what the contents were about. I thought it was a collection of quirky pictures and wasnt expecting so much poetic verse.

This book brought a big smile to my dear Dad's now usually puzzled face. He kept turning the pages and rediscovering the memories, over and over again.
