About Eliezer Sobel

Eliezer Sobel is also the author of Blue Sky, White Clouds: A Book for Memory-Challenged Adults. Although there are over 20,000 books for caregivers, this is one of the only books aimed at the patient. It is a simple, adult, picture book, filled with beautiful, realistic photographs of people and nature, which requires no memory to read and enjoy. If you are caring for a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s, or know someone who is, this book provides a shared activity that can stimulate conversation if that is still a possibility, and tender moments of connection regardless of what stage of memory-loss the person is in.
