Rediscover & Explore
A Short Story and Discussion Program
This is a weekly short story and discussion program designed specifically for seniors, even those who have memory loss. There are enough stories for activity directors to conduct this reading program weekly for TWO years! Each story is sold individually and conveniently available for purchase at Amazon! Each story also comes with a discussion guide which corresponds with the story and is written in a way that promotes reminiscing.
Stories include historical events, biographies, folk-lore, places of interest and holidays! They are written specifically for older adults, and include educational content that even the leader will enjoy!
