Getting to know you: An outdoor picture book with accompanying prompts
A bespoke nature based dementia activity designed by Sensory Trust.
By understanding how someone has related to the outdoors throughout their life we can consider the type of activity they might like to do now. This is a great activity for dementia care homes, day centres, activity clubs or anyone wishing to keep that connection with a loved one whilst at home.
Getting to know you is an outdoor picture book which comprises of a collection of images for you to look at and talk about together giving an insight into feelings about the outdoors, memories and any particular activities that are of interest. The pictures in the book have been chosen to represent a broad range of environments, experiences and activities. The book can be used as a reminiscence tool to talk about things such as picnics, bird watching, picking strawberries or growing flowers. It can also be used to talk about activities in people’s lives now.
Don’t worry if you’re stuck for conversation starters around the images; we have also produced a prompt book which is included and can be used alongside the photo book to help prompt and inspire sensory rich conversations around each image. Why not take it one step further and use the prompt suggestions to gather physical items to touch, smell and taste whilst going through the book. This handy little book can be used by anyone and forms a great base to inspire inter-generational conversations.
