Chocolate Rain, 100 ideas for a creative approach to activities in dementia care was published in January (2011) by Hawker Publications, London. (The first edition sold out and will be reprinted in 2015 by the same publisher).
It was previewed and launched at the 5th UK Dementia Congress in Bournemouth very successfully. I also gave a presentation on creativity and communication with people with dementia.
Here is one of the early reviews:
I feel this book should be essential reading for all those involved in dementia care. This is not only because Sarah inspires so much confidence in the reader to try new ideas, but also because she positively encourages a creative approach to communication and activity design.
The book is well thought out and well planned with delightful illlustrations, and full of practical ideas which will meet the needs of people in various stages of dementia.
A long-awaited book – definitely to be recommended.
