With the help of Powys Libraries, Sharing Stories is a new literature based scheme specifically designed for older people, including those living with mild to moderate dementia or depression, their families and their carers. The session will be led by Emma Van Woerkom who is a poet and Shared Reading facilitator.
Emma says "In simple terms, I read a selection of passages and poems to the participants and after each, if they want to, we discuss them. I hope to draw out individual memories, discover shared feelings and experiences between the participants and build on these. By linking literature, listening and lives we'll grow in confidence, stimulate our thoughts and, hopefully, enjoy a trip down memory lane together."
