Read a bit! Talk a bit!

 

Read a bit! Talk a bit! Series now including 

Read a bit! Talk a bit! Car

 This is a series of reading activity books intended for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
The books start with a short article or story for the participants to read, followed by a number of questions for the facilitator to ask. These questions are formulated to engage the participants in conversation and to encourage personal and meaningful reminiscences to flow.
 All the reading pages are in large type, 50 pt, and the text is only on one page per spread in order to help the individual to concentrate on the text and to minimize the constraints of visual impairment.
Memories recalled from earlier in life are often very therapeutic for people with dementia. They provide opportunities for positive and meaningful engagement with the past.
Remembering increases self esteem and a feeling of positive worth as the participants recall personal experiences. There are 10 books and they achieve this thanks to the range of familiar topics and questions to prompt and encourage discussion.
 
These resources are available for loan to members of AANSW - if you would like to reserve them please email the Library on nsw.library@alzheimers.org.au
