The Dementia Caregiver's Little Book of Hope [Kindle Edition]

On Nov 12, we celebrate, “Chicken Soup for the Soul”, Day. I am sure you are familiar with “Chicken Soup for the Soul” stories. They are heartwarming true short stories that bring smiles to people’s faces.

Reading “Chicken Soup for the Soul” stories are a great time filler. You can have higher functioning residents, students, volunteers or staff members read these stories to the residents. I always read the stories with a lot of expression and enthusiasm asking questions as I read. This way you keep everybody’s attention.

You can find Chicken Soup for the Soul” stories online, you can borrow these books from the library or you can purchase them.

Here are some links to “Chicken Soup for the Soul” stories

I hope you will shared some “Chicken Soup for the Soul” stories with your residents this November and other times throughout the year.
