Do you sometimes find it difficult to engage your loved one with dementia? To help them stay calm in the midst of an emotional reaction? To find activities you can share with them that encourage peaceful interaction?
This book can help.
Thumbing through this beautiful picture book with your loved one is an activity that will capture their attention, engage their mind, and encourage them to relax. This book is filled with beautiful, high-resolution photos of all kinds of trains, from vintage steam and diesel locomotives to sleek contemporary trains. If your loved one likes trains, these delightful photos will grab their interest and engage their imagination.
You'll find a lot of other picture books out there, mostly for kids. But it's demeaning for seniors to give them books meant for children. Adult photography books are usually large and heavy, and they often include long, frustrating paragraphs of text.
At Sunny Street Books, we design books specifically for seniors with dementia. They're lightweight yet high-quality, adult in nature, with nothing to distract your loved one from their enjoyment of the photos themselves.
Families, caregivers, and assisted living 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 long paragraphs of text will also enjoy this book. FEATURES
- Discreet Packaging At no time is anything mentioned about Alzheimer's disease, dementia, or any other challenges the reader might be facing. This book can be given to your loved one without fear that they might feel embarrassed or offended. - Beautiful Content
This book is filled with carefully-curated, full-color, high-resolution photos of trains. - No Text
The only text included in the book is on the title page, which means there's nothing to distract your loved one from their enjoyment of the photos themselves. - Manageable Size
This is a 40-page, 6" x 9" softcover that's comfortable to hold and easy to tuck into a bag. - High Quality
The quality of this book's cover and its interior design are indistinguishable from books created for other readers. Just because a book is simple and uncomplicated doesn't mean it has to be unattractive, unprofessional, or childish. NOTES FOR CAREGIVERS
