As part of the Library’s initiative to be more dementia friendly, we have recently added to our collection of books a range that is specifically around dementia as well as some on nostalgia.

We are hoping that these books will inform people of what dementia is but also provide support to people living with dementia and their carers, plus be invaluable to trigger memories and conversations. Click here to find out more.
