Shadowbox Press developed a collection of eight interactive books designed to provide an easy and effective way to enhance the quality of communication between caregivers and adults experiencing memory loss.
“One of the biggest challenges for health-care professionals and in-home caregivers is the issue of maintaining meaningful communication with adults living with a memory-loss condition,” said Matthew Schneider, Shadowbox Press president.
The collection of books offer an assortment of subject matter created to accommodate a variety of tastes and interests. Each book features engaging words, inviting photographs, innovative conversation starters, and practical activities designed to evoke memories, initiate conversation, and supply mental and physical stimulation. The books are intended to be read independently or shared by a caregiver, loved one, staff member, or volunteer.
“We are inspired by the importance of books and the belief that reading should be enjoyed at all stages of life,” said Shadowbox Press director of product development, Deborah Drapac. “Our objective is to provide adults experiencing memory loss a comprehensive product designed to rediscover and share memories through the reading experience.”
Shadowbox Press books were created to meet the needs of individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, brain injury, or a related dementia. Titles include: America, Bible Verses, Colors, Dogs and Puppies, Flowers, Fun and Games, Seasons, and Wild Animals.
