Recording the Memories
quote:Originally posted by vickidale:I recently read about a woman who wrote a book about her mother for her mother to read. It was about family memories and things that her mother loved. The mother could still read and seemed to enjoy it. My mother has had Alzheimer's for about 7 years and although she doesn't know any of us, she can still read a little (not sure if she understands it though). But I plan to write to write a journal or book about the things she's always loved and I hope it may somehow trigger some pleasant memories for her. Does anyone have any suggestions to make this idea better? Thanks so much.
