Dementia reading list
Reading Well Books on Prescription helps you to understand and manage your health and wellbeing using self-help reading. The scheme is endorsed by health professionals and supported by public libraries.
All of these titles are available at the Hanley Library, Southport Hospital.
Dementia memory box
Memory boxes work on the principles of reminiscence or ‘life story’ therapy. Because the oldest memories are the ones that people with dementia retain the best it can give them great comfort to see and talk about items that trigger those memories.
A memory box is available to borrow from the Hanley Library Southport Hospital. Click here for a list of contents.
