Memory Book Instructions

“Let’s Talk . . . About Me” provides a template for a memory book that can be used to help people who are living with dementia to remember: Details about his/her life (such as the names and faces of loved ones and things they did and enjoyed in the past) and Details that are important in the present (such details about what they do each day and as likes and dislikes). The information contained in a memory book can help someone with dementia spark memories and stimulate conversation. It is important to note that the size of the text and the photos pasted into the book need to be large enough for the user to clearly see. Since each person is unique – so too is the story, the details and the content of each memory book.
