Marina Riggins, whose motto is “Love, Compassion, and Respect towards the residents,” has completed her new book “Alzheimer’s Disease and other Dementias Specialized Visual Trivia”: a useful book of therapeutic trivia carefully designed to help patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia to reconnect with their most cherished long-term memories.

Marina Riggins, MA, specializes in music, art, and recreational therapeutic activities for persons suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of Dementia. She has devoted most of her adult life to helping these individuals, visiting them in dementia care facilities on a weekly basis.

Author Marina Riggins describes her work, writing, “This is a specialized visual therapeutic trivia, which include pictures, questions, answers, and fun facts about famous musicians, actors, and comedians. It has been designed exclusively for dementia-care facilities or to be used at home. This particular therapeutic trivia is very helpful for individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and other related forms of dementia. The main goal is to spark a conversation and invoke long-term memories, which is one of the cornerstones to performing successful therapeutic activities with the goal of reducing agitation and enhancing overall welfare. This book is printed in large bold-text format where the pictures are black and white to not confuse patients with visual issues. If some of the patients cannot join activities, the printed version of this book could be offered to them as well.”

Published by Page Publishing, Marina Riggins’s engaging work is intended to help activities personnel, recreational therapists, caregivers, as well as people who may be confined at home or otherwise not able to participate in the daily activities offered within dementia care facilities. The goal is to achieve more successful participation to improve the overall well-being of residents by reducing agitation, sparking conversations, and most importantly, bringing the joy of shared memories and experiences to their lives. This book was based upon many years of experience and observation in these environments. It was constructed with love, compassion, and respect toward our fellow human beings.

Readers who wish to experience this helpful work can purchase “Alzheimer’s Disease and other Dementias Spec” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
