Welcome to In My World! I’m glad you’re here.
My name is Laura Bowley, and I’ve spent years talking and working with people living with dementia, including my own mother, to whom this special book is dedicated.
They have taught me that even those in the middle and later stages of the disease can and want to be engaged in meaningful activities that stimulate learning and thinking. Reading, whether alone or with a partner, is the perfect activity.
In My World: Short Stories About Familiar People and Places contains 12 one-page stories, designed for adults, that get readers thinking and reminiscing about people and places in their lives and their communities.
Each story is printed in a large reader-friendly font and is accompanied by a colourful photo.
I invite you to share this stimulating and engaging reading activity with someone you love.
Note: People in the early stage of dementia may find this book too simple. There are books available for readers who desire a different level of challenge in the form of short novels, and I’m happy to tell you about some.
