An Engaging Gift Book for Alzheimer's Patients and Seniors with Dementia

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 full-color, high-resolution photos of a variety of sailboats accompanied by beautiful ocean imagery. Whether your loved one is a fan of sailboats or simply enjoys the relaxation of looking at beautiful photos, they will be delighted to turn the pages of this book to see what sailboat is next.

You'll find a lot of other picture books out there, mostly for kids. But it's demeaning to give seniors 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. They're small, manageable "coffee table books" that will help reinforce your loved one's sense of self while preserving their dignity. You can rest assured that at no time is anything mentioned about Alzheimer's disease, dementia, or any other challenges the reader might be facing.

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.
