Still My Grandma
By Veronique Van den Abeele
Illustrated by Claude K. Dubois
Eerdmans Books for Young Readers
This positive story with comforting illustrations will be especially helpful if your loved one will be under the care of an assisted living facility in the future. It should be noted that Grandma does look sad, bewildered, and vacant when Alzheimer’s develops in the story, but by the end she appears happy in her new life. At the end of the story, Grandma remembers her special kiss with her grandchild, indicating that she is in the early to middle stages of Alzheimer’s. This message may not be appropriate for children who have loved ones in the later stages of Alzheimer’s, as your loved one may not be able to make such recollections.
