It is lovely to see so many children coming to visit us here at Baily House. They never fail to bring a smile to the faces of everyone, staff and Resident alike. We wondered how many of them have an understanding of why their Grandma/Grandad may forget things. So we had a look for something to help to teach them, and we found these brilliant books!
All of them have been written to explain dementia in a child friendly story for varying ages. We have sent them to some of our wonderful staff’s houses to be tested by their kids, and the feedback has been fantastic!
If you would like to have a look yourself, or if you are bringing your little ones in, feel free to pick up a copy on each floor for them to read while you visit. We will be looking to add more things for the children over the coming months, so watch this space!
