Book published for Welsh-speaking dementia sufferers

A social enterprise has published a book and related pack specifically designed for Welsh-speaking people with dementia.

Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau (Land Of My Fathers), which is written in Welsh but has English subtitles, is a pack containing a 64-page book, a DVD and postcards in Welsh and has been published by Pictures To Share, a community interest company which specialises in publishing dementia-friendly books.

The aim is for the book to prompt communication and discussion among dementia patients and their carers.

The book features familiar and traditional songs such as Land Of My Fathers and Calon Lan, poems, nursery rhymes, photographs and paintings, with a good dash of humour thrown in.

The book and related pack is priced £20 and is available from the Pictures To Share website.
