Just because the short-term memory is failing, doesn’t mean that people suffering from different forms of dementia don’t like to talk. They do. The secret to a good conversation with a person who suffers from Alzheimer’s is to talk about things they do remember. This often takes them back decades, to their youth. Read a Bit! Talk a Bit! is a series of activity books specifically designed to get a good dialogue going with people who suffer from dementia and Alzheimer’s. Each book is written in large type and starts with a short article on the subject, and is followed by 15-20 questions for the group leader to ask and discuss with the participants. Read a Bit, Talk a Bit, has a wide variety of subjects to cover interests of both genders. All books can be used with groups or one-on-one. The books are self-explanatory and can be used by carers as well as professionals.
