Dementia is an illness that impacts our closest loved ones. Grandma forgets is a beautiful children’s book dedicated to raising awareness of the illness and bringing a stronger understanding to children as to why ‘grandma forgets’.

Today, there are more than 410,000 Australian’s living with Dementia along with their families. For those directly impacted, Dementia causes the loss of memory, intellect, rationality, social skills and physical functioning. It can be challenging, confusing and difficult for families and loved ones to understand.

‘Grandma Forgets’ is a beautiful story to uplift and inspire. Author Paul Russell and Illustrator Nicky Johnson address the difficult task of explaining to a child that their Grandma doesn’t remember them. It works to teach children how to love and hold onto their memories of their Grandparents and celebrates it through a story of a family bound by love on an unforgettable journey.

As a cause dear to the hearts of the team at Prestige Inhome Care, support was provided to host the official launch of ‘Grandma Forgets’ at Beaumaris Library on Saturday 16 September. With special guests, book signings, Raffle Prizes, Kids’ activities and Afternoon Tea, the event was a huge success.
