Reading Well Books on Prescription for Dementia

This national scheme was launched in January 2015 and consists of a collection of 25 books that you might find helpful if you have dementia, are caring for someone with dementia, or want to find out more about the condition. It works in the same way as the general Books on Prescription scheme.
