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.

When an individual has dementia, poetry has the ability to connect with them in a way that nothing else can. With the help of John Killick, a specialist in using poetry with people who have dementia, this varied collection of poems has been brought together and illustrated with beautiful images. Including famous poets such as Wendy Cope, Philip Larkin and William Wordsworth, as well as some that are less well known, this collection includes some poems that people may know, some that should make them smile, and some that aim to help them feel connected with the world.

43 colour and b&w illustrations.
