Remembering together: Making a life history book

A group of people lookling at a book

A life history book is a homemade book compiled to capture memories and stories about a person's life.

Making a life history book can be an enjoyable and empowering activity for a person with dementia which may enable greater interaction and open up communication between someone with dementia and their carers, family and friends. A life history book may be something that visitors can look through with a person, or it can be referred to by professionals to learn more about the person they are providing care for.

If you would like to find out more about how you could compile your own book, or help someone you know, download the 'Remembering together' leaflet.
