'A World of Work in pictures' celebrates the lives of working people through wonderful images and texts. This book is a great reminder of those long years spent earning a living.
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.
Full colour and black and white, large format (250mmx285mm) 48 page hardback book.

“I purchased two books to try with my father resident in a care home. He has dementia and it was difficult to engage him in conversation. I took the two books on my next visit and I chose one. We started to look at it, helping him to turn the pages. It was an hour of chat, laughs and fun! He smiled, pointed to pictures and text, read some of the words and touched odd pictures very tenderly. When a carer came into the room to get him ready for tea, he said “Oh Dear! We haven’t finished the book.” I left him, reassuring him we would read the books again – as we have. I was in tears sitting outside in my car; I have found my Dad again, within that hour. Thank you.”
