• Spending time Indoors

  • Spending Time Indoors portrays some of the traditional and less common ways that people fill their spare time indoors. Breakfast in bed, knitting and sewing, stamp collecting, listening to music, playing cards... and much more, and all illustrated with great pictures.

    The books can be enjoyed by anyone with or without dementia.  The books work well when the person with dementia no longer recognizes family photographs, and is less able to hold a conversation, the books can provide an enjoyable activity.

    The success of our books in enhancing the quality of life for those with dementia has been independently recognised by their inclusion on the prestigious
    Reading Well Books on Prescription Scheme in 2015.

    “My mother’s response to the books was amazing. We sat together on the settee and Mum turned the pages with great interest. In her limited way she made comments and expressions, even picking out the occasional word. Her overall mood during this session, which lasted half an hour, was of joy and laughter. It not only brought joy to her, but also to me and my father.”

  • When I'm looking at the books with Mum, I feel we are communicating more as we used to, before dementia developed.
