Full of beautiful color images from the 1960s in the United States that stimulate long-term memories. Share the fun and relaxing pleasures with a loved one of flipping through old photos that can spark conversation or reminiscence, reinforcing a sense of self and identity.
Walk down memory lane with sections on music, movies, sports, fashion, and much more. There is minimal text so that the images can prompt personal stories and encourage communication.
♥ Rekindle the love of books for elderly readers with dementia. Our books are specifically designed for adults, as giving seniors books meant for children can be demeaning. They are also short and lightweight, without the distractions and awkwardness of handling larger photo books.
Give the gift of self-empowerment, hope, and dignity to people with dementia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, or those rehabilitating after a stroke. Seniors who struggle with memory loss, eyesight or strength challenges who find it difficult to hold a heavy book or read long paragraphs of text will also enjoy this book.
