Lori La Bey, host of Alzheimer's Speaks Radio has an exciting conversation with Rachel Thompson, CEO of Malena Books.  Rachel discusses the modification they make to their books which allows those living with dementia to continue to read independently longer.  Their books are written for adults using storylines of interest using short concepts, visualization and prompts to guide a person to be as independent as possible when reading.  Marlena Books puts dignity back into reading for those with demenita.
