When someone has dementia, traditional books can become incomprehensible and meaningless. This title from the popular range of Pictures to Share books is designed to be accessible and entertaining for anyone with mid to later stage dementia who has an interest in sport. Particularly popular with men, it includes a varied selection of images both photographic and painted; A black and white photograph of a rural cricket game alongside a large print quotation that describes cricket as "worship in the summer sun";A photograph showing greyhounds lined up ready to race, with the humorous quotation "Don't let's go to the dogs tonight, For mother will be there".Other photographs include a striking portrait of a young Mohammad Ali and a photograph of the 1966 England World Cup winning team. There are images of cycling, pigeon racing, ice skating, horse racing, fishing and many more.All the images are powerful and easy to understand, and prompt lots of memories and discussion between those with Alzheimer's or other dementia and their family, friends and carers. Even when people with dementia can no longer hold a conversation they will enjoy looking through the book and studying the pages.Arranged in a clear and easy to understand format, the book is recommended for those with dementia by the Reading Well, Books on Prescription scheme in England.

"My father has limited speech so now makes little verbal response to pictures but body language, smiles and counting indicate enjoyment. I think this book is excellent and my regret is that I didn't know about them earlier" --AnonymousAbout the Author:
