Adaptive Publications Providing Social, Cultural, and Spiritual

Lori La Bey talks with a variety of founders who are providing a variety of adaptive reading publications. This is a fabulous show that can be life-enriching for not just those living with dementia but for all older eyes! I think you will be amazed at all the resources we discussed and why they were developed.
