Reading Well Books on Prescription for Dementia book collections are available and free to borrow in every library across the county.

The collections include 25 titles recommended by health professionals covering:
  • normal ageing and memory problems
  • background information about dementia
  • living well with dementia
  • support for relatives and carers and personal stories
Books can either be ‘prescribed’ or found on library shelves. If you can’t find the book you want they are available through free reservation.

The scheme is run nationally by The Reading Agency and supported by Public Health Devon, The Alzheimer’s Society along with other national organisations working in dementia research, treatment and care.
