Just wondered what sort of things people were buying for their relatives with AZ? I was wandering round the shops thinking about some things that would give MIL pleasure..and found myself back ina toy and book shop..took me back to when my children were little. I found a wonderfully illustrated book of very familiar poems, and another beautifully illustrated book of two little mice in the snow ..minimal text but wonderful illustrations. It set me thinking about how difficult it is to find appropriate things for adults trapped by this terrib le disease, with minimal attention spans, but still good long term memories. I would have loved to find her simple books about familiar things she experienced in her childhood. I did find one book in past times with old adverts of soap powders..household goods etc which did interest her. I also found some great simple Galt games which we will be able to play with her..animal lotto with lovely pictures..a great shopping game..with a trolley each a simple shopping list and pictures of all the items.,,, also very simple sequencing puzzle..only 3 in a puzzle of simple day to day actions... oh and a game of pairs! We shall see if any of this interests her. My husband was a bit sceptical but I wanted to get her more than treats and the nurses ate the home hopefully will encourage her and others to play a few games! Love to hear any other ideas.
