Have you been diagnosed with Dementia or Alzheimer’s, or do you look after someone who has? If so we would like to invite you along to a dementia friendly storytelling session at Prestwick Library created especially for those living with Dementia and their carers. Please come and join in the fun with our guest storyteller. The interactive session will be followed with some light refreshments.

This is a free event but please telephone the library to reserve

Our sessions are there to be enjoyed by anyone living with dementia or experiencing difficulties with their memory, including their families and friends.

All are welcome; people who can attend independently and/or for those unable to do so should come with a companion who can provide any support for them.

We don’t provide transport for these sessions and therefore it is your responsibility to get to and from this community activity safely.
