The directions for this album are more of a story. Laurie's mother-in-law, Rachel, has Alzheimer's. She is at the stage where she is surprised to find out that she has grandchildren and doesn't always remember who her children are. She wants to go home but home is her childhood home in West Virginia. It isn't the house she has lived in for the last 31 years. LaurieåÊwanted to make a photo album for her that would help her recognize her family. Because of the challenges faced by people with declining memories, there are limited embellishments on this album. Each photograph is sealed into its own pocket with the information about the people in that photo. The hope is, this will allow the person with the failing memory to handle the book without fear of losing pictures.
The kit for this beautiful album includes 20 pages of 12x12 papers, 20 - 81/2x11 photo sleeves, 20 waterfall sleeves, detailed instructions with pictures and the album to contain it all. You will need a WeR Fuse tool to complete this album which is not included but available for purchase separately.
