Camden Council asked all people who live in Camden to give their views
on proposals about the future development of Camden care homes. The Council
wanted to ensure that people with dementia currently living in their care

Pictures to Share
Pictures to Share produces high quality illustrated books for people with
dementia. Pictures to Share wanted to ensure the images included in their
books were engaging and interesting for people with dementia.
We worked with 36 people with dementia in care homes and day centres to
choose images for two new pictures books – 'The Seaside' and 'It’s
A Funny Old World.'
We were able to report to Pictures to Share about the best style, colour
and content of pictures. We also provided recommendations about ways to
use the books with people with dementia.
