Focussing on the individual…
To Know Me is a book which combines a mini-biography and a personalised care guide.
A testament to a life lived and a personality loved, it offers the opportunity to really connect with people who are living with conditions which hinder their ability to communicate.
The first To Know Me book has been designed for people living with various forms of Dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. In addition to the mini-biography and personalised care guide, this book contains specific information on the ways in which the condition may affect the individual living with Dementia or Alzheimer’s and allows for words of advice to be added, which may help to lessen the effects of some of these symptoms on the individual, whilst helping those who care for them.
I remember feeling helpless and disconnected when my mum was diagnosed with Dementia and subsequently went to live in a care home. Through To Know Me, you can play an active role in the care of someone you love, who is no longer able to communicate their needs and wishes effectively; you can have a positive impact on the care they receive.
