Cognitive Books release Beatles musical resource 

Cognitive Books – who are part of the Alzheimer’s Society Accelerator Programme – has launched its first book in a series of ‘looking back at…’ resources, with a debut publication all about The Beatles. 

Cognitive Books support people with dementia by helping them to overcome common barriers they face when reading, and can be enjoyed alone or with support. The books use familiar stories, rhyme and rhythm for recall, and illustrations to bring the narrative and memories to life. They also have an audio download, narrated by actor Bill Nighy, that provides additional support and exercises that are based on Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST). 

Cognitive Books was founded by Matt Singleton after he noticed his father, who was diagnosed with dementia in 2017, was losing his passion for reading as his cognitive abilities declined. Matt works alongside people with dementia to develop his books.
