I really love your website. I still find it incredulous that this site exists. I know how hard it must be for our Lifestyle teams to keep coming up with ideas and activities and to now have found this site - WOW. I really do think it says a lot about the immense value of community collaboration - because this site is about that! so I am immensely proud that people, especially older people, may be benefitting from this wonderful resource all over the world.
I had a co-worker bring in this gorgeous book called Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge. Although it is a children's book, I'm confident the residents will enjoy it. A beautiful story they can relate to and hopefully have a laugh about. Otherwise I find they enjoy well-known poems, daily news articles or we have even read chapter books- the best been a book which was a compilation of letters from a POW in WWll. That way they didn't necessarily have to keep up with the story line as each chapter was a new letter and a new topic.
Hope this is helpful. Happy reading!
The stories are short and never marry her or me very appropriate for residents about all types
I'm sure you can find a few online

I agree, I am all about the Chicken Soup for the Soul Books, along with a great Canadian company called Dementiability. They have short, large print books that are great for conversation starters as well!
