FAQs on Dementia selected for Living Well Dementia book list

Tom Russ holding his book, 'FAQs on Dementia'

FAQs on Dementia, authored by our Director, Dr Tom Russ, and Alzheimer Scotland Dementia Advisor, Michael Huddleston, has been selected for the Reading Well booklist collection.


The new booklist from The Reading Agency features titles recommended by a panel of people affected by dementia, leading health professionals, and library staff. The collection has been built to help people understand more about dementia and includes books that provide information and advice; there are also personal stories and children’s fiction. 


We are delighted that the book is included in the collection and is now freely available at local libraries in time for Dementia Action Week. FAQs on Dementia intends to give readers expert responses to frequently asked questions about Dementia. Including the voices of those with lived experience, questions have been contributed by people with lived experience of dementia and The Scottish Dementia Working Group and the National Dementia Carers Action Network also contributed the foreword. To mark the publication of the Reading Well for Dementia List, Dr Russ, attended the House of Commons on Wednesday 22nd May, 2024, and enjoyed meeting authors and supporters of Reading Well for Dementia.

You can access the book at local libraries or find out where to get your copy at Sheldon Press. Browse the entire Reading Well for Dementia list at reading-well.org.uk/dementia
