I have developed the Ellie Memory Helper Pack to be a comprehensive resource for schools and children’s organisations to support discussion and learning about dementia.

I have been busy travelling around introducing as many children as possible to Ellie, her story, and dementia-related activities. However there’s only one of me! Over the years I’ve developed this pack for teachers, group leaders and families everywhere so they can benefit from this material – even when I’m not there.

The aim of the pack is to raise children’s awareness of dementia, and to encourage children to engage in activities to help people with memory-related difficulties. It also includes an example of an activity to be aware of how important it is to eat healthily, to keep your brain healthy. This can immediately benefit the whole family.

 

The Ellie Memory Helper Pack includes:

  • a drawstring canvas bag with printed Ellie Memory Helper logo
  • a fully-illustrated copy of The Forgetful Elephant book, which explains dementia to children, and suggests activities children can do with a loved-one living with dementia
  • a customised Ellie hand puppet, complete with Ellie’s pink ribbons, to help children engage with the story
  • guidelines for sensitively telling the story to children, and encouraging discussion and further activities
  • Boost Your Brainpower – ten foods which are particularly important to keep our brains functioning well – information to generate discussion with children and encourage prevention of dementia
  • a bookmark featuring Ellie’s poem from The Forgetful Elephant to encourage children to compose their own poems and songs to help raise awareness of dementia
