If you have a loved-one who is suffering with dementia or Alzheimer's disease, then having these cards conveniently at hand in your iPhone or iPod, can spark life, recognition and memories in them. These cards are the same images used in the acclaimed book series, "Simple Pleasures for Special Seniors."
More than a simple slide-show, these images have been researched and carefully constructed to avoid any mental confusion in dementia or Alzheimer patients.
“I am so touched by your SIMPLE PLEASURES FOR SPECIAL SENIORS© books and your genuine enthusiasm in helping people cope with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory loss illnesses. What a creative way for individuals to keep their memories active."
Maria Shriver, First Lady of the State of California, Alzheimer’s Research Advocate
“Dan Koffman’s SIMPLE PLEASURES© book series is a wonderful resource for eliciting memories and conversation with individuals who have cognitive challenges. The pictures of familiar objects and foods are thoughtfully selected and beautifully illustrated.”
Rebecca G. Logsdon, PhD, Research Professor, University of Washington, School of Nursing, Northwest Research Group on Aging
“I think these books will be very engaging for seniors with dementia and should be a great help for activities directors who are trying to find appropriate materials for their programs.”
Dr. Michelle Bourgeois, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, Professor of Speech & Hearing Science”
“The high quality of the photographs in SIMPLE PLEASURES© books, and the relevance of the items selected to the lives of persons with dementia, makes these materials a natural for eliciting engagement. These should be especially relevant for working with those challenging residents, family members and clients who have difficulty communicating due to more advanced dementia.”
