In Honor Of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month: Reading Materials To Ease Conversations About Dementia With Children


Source:

November is Alzheimer's Awareness Month, a time to heighten awareness about Alzheimer's disease and show support for the more than 5.8 million Americans living with it. Parents struggle with how to talk to children about why they might be seeing their grandparents or other elder family members struggling to remember everyday things, or even experiencing personality shifts.

Brightview Senior Living, a leader in senior living that builds, owns and operates 45 communities along the East Coast, has an innovative memory care assisted living program they call, Wellspring Village®, which is dedicated to memory care residents.

In honor of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, Brightview's Corporate Director of Dementia Care, Cole Smith, has compiled reading materials for caretakers and their families in order to help ease difficult conversations and explain dementia to children.

Reading about this topic can help kids and caregivers both learn about how to navigate visiting loved ones living with dementia. It can also teach young children about aging, patience and acceptance.

Striped Shirts and Flowered Pants: A Story About Alzheimer's Disease for Young Children: Libby and Nana love to read stories and color pictures together. They plant the garden in spring and feed the songbirds. But Libby notices that Nana is forgetting the words in books. She's mixing up the names of birds. She's wearing clothes that don't match. For parents, a note by psychologist Linda Scacco, PhD, offers guidance for helping children cope when a family member has Alzheimer's disease. (Ages 4-8)

Still My Grandma: Camille and her grandma have a special friendship. They have sleepovers, bake chocolate cupcakes together, go out shopping, and giggle at old photographs. But one day Grandma forgets Camille's name. Then she can't remember where to put her shoes. (Ages 4-10)

Grandma: Told in diary form, this is the story of how one child's Grandmother has to go into care. The change is unsettling, but there are many positives to draw from a touching and heartfelt relationship. (Ages 3-8)

The Remember Balloons: What’s Happening to Grandpa meets Up in this tender, sensitive picture book that gently explains the memory loss associated with aging and diseases such as Alzheimer’s. (Ages 5-9)

https://www.amazon.com/dp/1481489151/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_JKFDVQ18934JRF3Y4NNH

A Heart Full of GEMS: “A Heart Full of Gems” is a story that teaches children to pay attention to and share in the human connection that can be maintained when a loved one is living with Alzheimer’s. This beautifully illustrated book can be shared with any child, removing their fear and anxiety of Alzheimer’s disease and replacing it with calm and confidence. (Ages 10-14)

The Last Best Days of Summer: For twelve-year-old Lucy Crandall, the last week of August is the most perfect time in the world. It's the week she gets to spend with Grams at the lake house, canoeing, baking cookies, and glazing pots in Grams's potting shed. Grams has a way of making Lucy feel centered, like one of the pots on her kick wheel—perfect, steady, and completely at peace. But this summer, Grams doesn't seem to be exactly the person she once was. And as the week turns into a roller coaster of surprises—some good, some awful—Lucy can't help but wonder: Will things ever be centered again? (Ages 10-14)
