"A Heart Full of GEMS" by Rev. Linn Possell and Teepa Snow
Does someone your child loves have dementia?
"A Heart Full of GEMS" is a book with a story that teaches children to pay attention to and share in the human connection that can be maintained when someone is living with dementia.
When Abel is concerned about the changes he sees in his grandma, he climbs a tree and meets a wise peacock. The peacock helps Abel understand how to stay connected with his grandma, continue their relationship, and focus on the love they share.
In addition, the Appendix includes a practical guide to help everyone adapt to the changes we experience when someone we love is living with dementia. The GEMS model recognizes the dynamic nature of the human brain and its abilities. The GEMS advocate that everyone living with brain change, when given the opportunity, will shine.
