Would you like to engage your loved one living with dementia? 
Would you like to soothe and comfort them during times of agitation or sundowning?

Do you long to make conversation and encourage meaningful in-person or virtual interaction?
Would you like to help affirm their identity and lived experience?

NANA'S BOOKS™ award winning, inclusive series can help you reconnect through classic, nostalgic prayer, thoughtfully paired with magnificent fine art. Each book in the series is specially designed to facilitate sharing and relaxation. Recognizable text and delightful images blend to bring your loved one a successful, stress-free experience with materials they can enjoy again and again. The themes are upbeat, peaceful, and carefully selected to elicit recollections of simpler times. There is no mention of dementia.

These unique books meet the needs of those living with brain changes in a dignified, respectful way. These are not children’s books repurposed for people living with dementia, but classics re-mastered to accommodate those in cognitive decline --while promoting social engagement. Enhanced quality of life through compassionate design is at the heart of every book in the series.

This lovely Book of Prayer features 42 lovely and heartwarming images with prayers and devotional poetry in large, easy-to-read font, to be shared together or enjoyed independently. The contents is designed to help your loved one feel God's transcendent peace. Nostalgic poetry brings people joyful connection with their pasts as it reaffirms identity and sense of wellbeing. For those living with brain changes, it is an invitation back into art and literature to restore the spirit and inspire reminiscence and cognitive engagement.

NANA’S BOOKS can be enjoyed independently in early-stages, with a care partner in middle-stages, and as a melodic read-aloud for those in later stages, palliative care and hospice. NANA’S BOOKS soothe sundowning and transitions in all stages, and provide a beautiful picture walk at any time. With a soft wipeable cover and convenient size, this book can be slipped into a bag or purse easily. It makes a loving gift of faith for anyone experiencing brain changes: stroke, Parkinson’s, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), (CTE), in palliative or hospice care.  A powerful resource for pastoral care, recreation, reminiscence, occupational, validation, and life review therapies.
