Our Mission

We believe individuals with dementia should have access to age-appropriate, dignifying, adaptive recreation. 





Our Story

Named after founder Rachel Thompsons' grandmothers Marilyn and Helena, Marlena Books was created to encourage individuals with Alzheimer's and dementia to keep reading. Marilyn lives with dementia and inspired Thompson to create recreational tools for individuals with Alzheimer's and dementia who are often left with limited recreational tools to engage with.

At Marlena Books, our team values the importance of maintaining dignity for individuals with Alzheimer's and dementia. We are focused on improving the well-being of individuals with Alzheimer's and dementia. Our products have been well received by the dementia community and we are expanding our product line to better support the needs of individuals living with Alzheimer's and dementia. Our customers have expressed their love for our products, vision, and our support to individuals with Alzheimer's and dementia to engage in their favourite leisure activities while feeling dignified. 

Books are able to be read independently or used with friends, family, or support partners. They feature mature, engaging content at appropriate reading levels in order to ensure that readers can navigate throughout the books with ease. The books also include beautiful, abstract artwork prepared by individuals living with dementia.

Marlena Books promotes ability and dignity for all individuals and is committed to providing #ReadingBeyondDementia.
