One of the biggest challenges for health-care professionals and home caregivers is the issue of maintaining meaningful communication with a memory-impaired adult. Shadowbox Press books offer a variety of titles that are designed to provide an easy and effective way to improve the quality of communication between caregivers and memory-impaired adults. They have been developed to evoke memories, initiate conversation, and supply mental and physical stimulation. Our books are comprised of three unique sections: The STORY, CONVERSATION STARTERS, and ACTIVITIES.

  • “These books are an excellent resource for care partners interested in connecting and sharing with someone who has dementia. They have great themes, well designed photos combined with limited but focused words and of equal importance information for care partners on how to use the books and how to engage the person. Each book has a variety of ways in which it can be used. Each one offers ideas and suggestions for those who may not be familiar with dementia or common issues that limit the person’s ability to be like they used to or do what they used to. It is very helpful to have props and resources that are simplified, NOT babified to use when what was, is no more. NICELY DONE!”
