How do I choose?

The Alzheimer’s Australia (Victoria) library has been producing an interesting blog on all thing related to dementia resources for a few years now (it’s worth a look any time). In November they’ve put out a list of 20 of the most borrowed items from the Alzheimer’s Australia libraries during 2016. They say they’ve chosen the list based on four criteria: it’s well written, gets consistently good feedback from borrowers, positive reviews from professionals, and that the library staff love it – something like ‘We recommend…’ stickers in book shops. So, perhaps you might find a Christmas present ideas or two here?! The list includes a range of books: personal accounts of living with dementia (‘Green Vanilla Tea’ by Marie Williams), fiction (‘Still Alice’ by Lisa Genova), DVDs and guides.
