The Reading Agency’s new Reading Well for Dementia collection launches this week, and is available in libraries across the UK. 

Reading Well for Dementia recommends helpful reading and digital resources for people living with dementia. There are also books for family, friends and carers. The booklist provides reliable information, advice and support as well as personal stories and age-appropriate books for children.  

The new booklist is targeted at people living with dementia, carers and family members including younger children to help them understand more about dementia.
