Focus On: Pictures to Share Books

As part of our ongoing partnership work with the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust Dementia Team we have recently added a selection of Pictures to Share books to stock at Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust Staff Library.

Pictures to Share books are designed to be accessible and entertaining for anyone with mid to later stage dementia. They aim to prompt memories and enable discussion between those with dementia and their families, friends and carers. More information about the books can be found on the Pictures to Share website.

The collection may be of particular interest to our MY colleagues for use during reminiscence activities with patients.
