With beautiful, rich Jewish-themed photographs with simple, easy-to-read captions in big print, designed to stimulate memories in Jewish patients suffering with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, each page of L’Chaim!: Pictures to Evoke Memories of Jewish Life stands on its own, requiring no memory in order to contemplate and enjoy each individual selection. The book is intended to provide an activity for caregivers and health aides to share with our loved ones with memory loss, to provoke conversation, reminiscence and tender moments of joy and connection. L’Chaim! is the second in a series specifically created for aging Jewish patients. It is among the very few works targeted directly for actual dementia patients themselves rather than at their caregivers.
