Bonnie Day's Gill Johnson and Marilyn McGregor publish a book of poetry for older people...

'Now tell me - how about you?' are poems written for visitors of older people including those living with dementia.  Sometimes it is hard to think of things to talk about when visiting.  This set of original poems triggers reminiscence and stimulates discussion aiding engagement. Each poem has ideas to promote a conversation and enhance time together. 

The original poems in this book have been written particularly with older people in mind reflecting experiences in the past and using words familiar in days gone by. 

Our nostalgic poems have been very well received during our work with older people in care homes. We have listened to many happy memories and included some of the personal reminiscences that we have heard in the book.

Our poems have been the centre of much fun and enjoyment and we wanted to share the poems with you.

'Now tell me - how about you?'  is available to buy NOW from Amazon.
