Reading out against Forgetfulness

  • 3-5 minute stories
  • Stimulating sentence completion games

New material to read out for all those accompanying people suffering from dementia: These 52 stories and sentence completion games allow spending precious hours together. Episodes from professional life, about hobbies and travels build upon old skills and let reader and listener alike take a walk down memory lane. Experiences with neighbours, friends and family give comfort within a social network.
The stories’ choice of words addresses all senses and encourages the exchange of perception and experiencing: What does summer rain feel like? What does fresh hey smell like? Idioms can be made use of, can be altered and amended.
The book is a treasure chest you can choose from, promoting the listener’s individual needs and skills.
