The Picture Book of Dogs
This book for seniors with dementia is filled with carefully-curated, full-color, high-resolution photos depicting the beauty and personality of dogs.
Many seniors either have dogs now or have fond memories of those dogs they've known earlier in their lives. A person with dementia often has difficulty with their recent memory, but their long-term memories are more accessible. Seeing these beautiful photos of dogs may inspire them to talk about their current pets or even reminisce about pets they once had.
Families, caregivers, and memory care staff can share this book with the people they care for. It is also an excellent activity for seniors with Parkinson’s disease or recovering from a stroke. Seniors with eyesight or strength challenges who find it difficult to hold a heavy book or read paragraphs of text will also enjoy this book.
The only text in this book consists of the names of the dogs in large print. Click the arrows on the cover to see sample pages from the book.
