Library support for people with dementia and their carers
Libraries are committed to supporting people living with dementia and their carers.
Why libraries? Libraries are seen as trusted, non-judgemental places in the community where people feel safe and welcome. This is vital for people living with dementia and those who care for them.
What does your local library have to offer?
- books, including in large print
At all libraries we also have:
- information books to borrow on dementia
- information about organisations in Derby where you can get further support
If you prefer, you can just sit and relax in the library and have a look round at what we offer in your own time. Library staff are always happy to talk to you if you have any questions.
