Marianne  Vier, Lothar  Schröer - Folk and Fairy Tales against Forgetting


Oases in the time of forgetting

The face lights up, memories awaken, conversation is possible – how nice to be in contact again with relatives suffering from dementia. Reading folk or fairy tales can be an effective stimulus, awakening memories of childhood and thereby creating a bridge to the present. Reading stories to them also makes it possible for people with dementia to be relieved of some of their uncertainties and feelings of incompleteness about their world, and to arrive at a sense of peace.

In this book, the professional storytellers Marianne Vier und Lothar Schröer tell of their years of experience in their work with people with dementia. They clearly explain step by step how reading and then engaging in conversation about the stories can be a comfortable and stimulating experience for all concerned.

•With 40 specially prepared fairy and folk tales – for reading out loud and experiencing together

•For relatives of people with dementia

•Step by step instructions
