Understanding Grandpa’s New World is a storybook dedicated to empowering youth who live with someone with dementia.

The story centers on a young boy nicknamed Fish who becomes aware of changes in his grandfather’s behaviour. Iris the Dragon helps Fish come to understand what dementia is while normalizing the feelings he’s experiencing. Iris helps Fish navigate how to remain connected with his grandfather and how to support him as the dementia progresses.

The 34-page, beautifully illustrated storybook contains end-of-chapter discussion points for adults and an epilogue from Dr. Anne Hennessy, a psychiatrist who specializes in psychotherapy for the elderly and caregivers.
