Dementia Collection


 

 

The ’Pictures to Share’ collection is intended for people with mid to late stage dementia. The books are simple, clear and often colourful, with no confusing backgrounds or content that is difficult to interpret.

They are chosen because they provide an opportunity for telling stories or for linking in to themes that most people will recognize. The set includes ’In the Garden’, ’Travelling’, ’Shopping’, ’Pets’, ’The Countryside’, ’Beside the Seaside’, ’A Funny Old World’, ’Family Life’, ’A World of Work’, ’Childhood Days’, ’A Sporting Life’ and the latest title ’Proverbs and Sayings’.

  
The books are available to borrow individually or as a set, free of charge to individuals, community groups and organisations.
