    Books on Prescription

    When we have dementia, poetry has the ability to connect with us in a way that nothing else can. With the help of John Killick, a specialist in using poetry with people who have dementia, we have brought together this varied collection of poems and illustrated them with the beautiful images that are our trademark. 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.

    Full colour and black and white, large format (250mm x 285mm) 56 page hardback book.

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