These picture books are aimed at filling a gap for people who like to read but cannot cope with a lot of words and text. Designed by Sandra Bowen, a registered nurse/ dementia care educator with post-graduate qualifications in dementia care and gerontology, the books are for use by people living with dementia, ABI and ID with the aim to assist them to keep “reading”. Filled with photos relevant to a particular interest, many of the pages also have descriptor words printed in large print on them.
The pleasure in turning pages, reading/looking at pictures, even just engaging with a book, supports previous routines and pastimes.
