Ageless Sages is the world’s first publishing company that predominantly prints picture books for senior citizens.
Their goal is produce books that “bring comfort and delight to elderly individuals in need of positive literature. Reading and soaking in artwork both keep a mind stimulated…”
Beth Miller is credited with writing the first book in this genre, Lavendar Ladies, in 2008.
One of Ageless Sages’ core goals is to remove society’s shaming of nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other eldercare institutions. They hope that their publications will “…help bridge gaps between family members who may not always understand what their senior relatives experience mentally, physically and emotionally on a daily basis.”
In 2017, when my own mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, I wrote a series of three Interactive Picture Books for those who are afflicted with this disease.
My I Remember Series includes: I Remember the Seasons, I Remember Bible Stories, and I Remember Holidays.
Each book features beautiful artwork, original poetry, ideas/questions for meaningful interaction, and suggestions for relevant activities.
These books are available on Amazon, individually or as an entire series.
