Pictures to Share books make perfect presents for someone with dementia. When someone has dementia they find it difficult to understand the world and to communicate with family, friends and carers. Our books help prompt meaningful conversation about a wide range of subjects, but can also be enjoyed even when the person with dementia is no longer able to talk.
Using the books can improve mood, relieve depression and calm agitation, providing an opportunity to enjoy shared time together with friends, family or carers.
“My mother was immediately engaged by the books, and they are a great distraction when things are happening such as chiropody that she doesn’t enjoy. She reads all the text out loud and spontaneously returns to the books to read them again.”
