Dementia

Nova Scotia Hearing & Speech Centres recognizes that people with dementia have many challenges with communication. Life History Books can be valuable tools to facilitate interaction and help people with dementia tell their stories. We have compiled some learning tools to assist families and carers with the creation and use of Life History Books.
