Reading well, Books on prescription for dementia, Launch event

Reading Well, Books on Prescription for Dementia is a new scheme which is looking to introduce a collection of books on and around dementia offering guidance, support, advice and activities for people with dementia and their carers to access. The aim of the new service is to reduce the stigma associated with dementia. The new scheme will launch in February in all St Helens Libraries, following on from the national campaign launch in January 2015. The launch event took place on the second of February at St Helens Central Library and featured stalls from dementia and mental health support services offering information and advice. Following the official launch there was the Reminiscence Karaoke session featuring guest singers with the aim of classic songs engaging people with dementia and helping to stir their memories. The event was also attended by the Mayor and Mayoress of St Helens who had no reservations about joining in! For further details on the reading well scheme please click here2 feb 14 015
