Studies have shown that 'reminiscence therapy' can be helpful to those with dementia, particularly when they recall the surroundings of their youth and early middle age. This book is intended to help stimulate such memories and when read together with a relative or carer, it can also help promote conversation and social interaction.
The book does not mention dementia or memory loss, or anything that could cause distress or embarrassment to patients.
It can equally be enjoyed by those without memory loss, for example, grandparents reading together with grandchildren.
