    Library Resources

    Hi,

    I went to a talk at my local memory cafe given by a librarian. She said my local library had boxes of resources for people suffering from Dementia. These included some beautiful picture books on a whole range of subjects and also boxes of objects from the past for them to pick up and handle.

    I would never have known had I not been to the Memory Cafe that particular day. Might be worth asking at your local library.

    I wondered if my new book of short stories might be of use to people on the forum. I will be sending a press release to the Alzheimers Society but in the meantime here's the link to my book written from my heart and experience.

    Contact your local library, they often have lists of suitable books and are good at getting them together for you, library services are dying from lack of people using them.
