Hello everyone visiting Artywords ~ I'm afraid that I'm soooo busy designing and developing memory prompts and activities for people living with dementia that I haven't got a nano second to write my children's stories or finish 'that' novel which has temporarily scurried away into the bottom draw of the filing cabinet !
So, please, hop over the www.happydayspublishing.blogspot.com and share the word about new resources to help carers interact with residents in residential care homes.
Getting to really know each resident can provide a basis for conversation and shared topics, prompt activity and help to stave boredom or agitation. "All About Me" is a subtly colourful booklet for people with dementia to share with carers, record social history, favourites and not-so-favourties. Extra care through social interaction may enhance well-being for both participants.
'My Memory Jogger' contains more space and is a special place to record life experiences, photographs and recollections. Designed to share with family, friends and carers to create conversation and activity, provide meaningful interaction and enjoyment.
