  2. 2. ©Fran West 2015 About the Author Fran West has been as a public library manager dealing a lot with elderly patrons. Then she had a mid life creativity, gave up her career, and decided to fly herself around Australia’s coast, taking photos as she went. Much later on, quite by accident, she was asked by two activities coordinators to create some DVDs for the men in their facilities. From that small beginning she has developed a passion (and a business) for creating products suitable for dementia patients and aged care generally. Now there are CDs with interactive jigsaws and quizzes, Photo Downloads, Kindle picture books and wooden jigsaw puzzles. Her photos are also available on a variety of products from Zazzle and CafePress.
