Lovely Old Lion at Huntercombe

Following a reading by Julia Jarman at another home, Jane the Home Manager at Huntercombe thought it would be a great idea to buy the book and do a reading herself to a local primary school that visited the home. It is hard for anyone to understand and cope with dementia, but for children it can be particularly difficult. With so many children now experiencing it with their own grandparents or great grandparents it is important that they have some understanding of what it is.

The Lovely Old Lion is about Lenny the lion who loves his grandpa, King Lion. But when King Lion starts to forget things, Lenny begins to worry. He can’t understand why grandpa keeps getting muddled and doesn’t want to play any more. Lenny doesn’t know what to do, but with a little help from grandpa’s old friends, perhaps he can find a way to help him remember.

The reading was really successful with the children and provoked lots of questions.
