Easy to use flash cards provide the loved one, caregiver or healthcare professional with a host of visual, conversation-starting exercises and ideas. It focuses on things that folks with dementia can do and helps them, and those interacting with them, feel good The photographs are presented in such a way as to maximize Alzheimer's folks' attention, and provide them with a mind stimulating, meaningful pastime
**Like the book, fourteen baby photographs are used to stimulate conversation and rouse pleasant memories in folks with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia.
**Unlike the book, the ideas and activity suggestions are written on the back of the 8.5 X 11 inch pictures. This makes it extremely easy for the activity or other professional to view them while using the cards with a group or individual. A number of simple, yet creative games can be played with the flash cards alone or in combination with the book.

Great tool to help combat dementia
"Susan Bergs' flash cards that accompany her new book are awesome. They were instrumental in my daily interaction and work with the elderly population. As a new student of Occupational Therapy, the flash cards were also very educational and a great tool to help combat dementia. I would highly recommend them in addition to the wonderful book!"
