The first of its kind in Ireland, ‘Feathers in My Brain‘, was developed in response to a lack of resources for children with a relative with dementia. Created by North Cork Dementia Alliance, written by Christine O’Riordan and illustrated by Nigel Robertson, it sensitively addresses how a diagnosis of dementia can be felt by all the family and how inclusion and openness can help everyone. We hope that families will read this book together and gain insights into ways in which children can continue to connect with their loved ones with dementia.

Proceeds from the sale of this book will go towards North Cork Dementia Alliance services.

The book is currently being reprinted and will be available again in approximately two months. Please contact us to be put on the waiting list for the reprint.
