The Picture Book of Beaches: A Gift Book for Alzheimer's Patients and Seniors with Dementia (Paperback)
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. It's filled with carefully-curated, full-color, high-resolution photos of gorgeous beaches from around the world. Every photo is a spectacular panorama that occupies a two-page spread. Your loved one will feel a sense of delight and anticipation as they turn the pages to see what beautiful beach is next.
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 and people 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.
