To help children to communicate with their elders and to capture memories, I have written the Getting To Know You activity booklet. Children of any age (yes, we’re always children, even in midlife and beyond!) can record an older loved one’s memories by answering the thoughtful selection of key questions in the booklet, quickly and easily.


Communication is so important in our lives. This booklet is a simple, fun activity to encourage children of all ages to interact with their elders, including those who do not have dementia.

The activity itself can become a fond memory for a child as they recall completing the booklet together with an older loved one. It is an excellent way for both the person asking and the person answering to reconnect with their inner child.

Children are fascinated to learn about their elders’ life stories, and the person sharing them will enjoy thinking back to those days. The completed memory journal becomes a keepsake for future generations. In future, it may be a useful resource for Carers to get to know more about a person in their care.

Once a child has enjoyed completing this booklet, they may like to go on to read The Forgetful Elephant story together with an older loved one. More activities are suggested in the story.
