These are Bible and prayer guides for people with dementia. They can be used by a carer with someone in their own home, or as a simple outline for someone visiting a dementia home. Each book has a cd with the songs and hymns for the daily devotions. There are ‘cues and clues’ to help the carer and person with dementia talk together, pray and worship.
The books were developed with help from MHA and CCOA.
