How do you explain dementia to a six year old?

The Ally Bally Bee Project is on a mission to make such difficult conversations a little easier with our personalised children’s book about dementia.

Imagine being able to explain “granny’s dementia” to your child with a book that features both of them as the main characters. From names and appearances to certain behavioural traits (after all, dementia affects everyone differently) – we plan to allow for such customisation through an interactive website. Simply create the story online then click to have it delivered to your door!
