About Our Guest:
Books for Connection: Memories from Nana. This week's guest is Laurette Kiler, the author and creator of Nana's Books. When her mother-in-law developed Lewey-Body dementia, Laurette looked for ways to have quality engagement with her. In this chat with her, you'll learn how this need ended up as a passion project for anyone who has a loved one with dementia.
Nana's books is an educator-created treasury of nostalgic books designed to engage people in cognitive decline and their care partners. Lovingly designed and created, each book helps elicit positive emotions, fond memories, and connections. Visually stimulating, nostalgic photos of people, scenes, and events are far more engaging than a single labeled image.
