Color Your Mind: A Coloring Book for Those with Alzheimer's and the People Who Love Them is an innovative book filled with both information and inspiration. Authored by award-winning journalist, best-selling author, and Alzheimer's advocate Maria Shriver and developed with insights from caregivers, neurologists, psychologists, and, of course, people with Alzheimer's, it is written as a resource for caregivers, family, and friends to help forge communication and connection with people with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia.
Coloring is a creative outlet, a way to relieve stress, and even a way to connect with other people--all benefits that contribute to overall well-being. Yet, Color Your Mind is more than just a coloring book Throughout this book are coloring pages, activity suggestions, and prompts for shared reflection and conversation. This book is entirely unique in that it connects coloring with helpful information surrounding well-being, social connection, nutrition, exercise, moving the mind, and sleep--all valuable lessons for a fulfilling, balanced life.
Color Your Mind is a coloring book in a category all its own; it is the first and only coloring book created specifically for people with Alzheimer's. Eagerly anticipated, Color Your Mind has thousands of pre-orders. Color Your Mind is featured on the April 26, 2017 episode of The Doctors on CBS, in the June 2017 issue of Oprah magazine, and was noted in Maria Shriver's recent acceptance speech when she was recognized by the Alzheimer Foundation with their first ever Alzheimer's Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award (March 28, 2017).
"This coloring book fills an unmet need and it can facilitate meaningful time and interactions between people with Alzheimer's, their family members and caregivers." -- Dr. Richard Isaacson
