This event launches Hackney Council & the Alzheimer's Society's Dementia Festival 2019 that marks Dementia Action Week a lively programme of events across the borough.

Hackney's Community Library Service, who deliver books, talking books, music, film and jigsaws to housebound and disabled residents, would particularly welcome you as at the event they will be launching a range of dementia-friendly jigsaws bespoke to Hackney. The images have been selected to provoke local memories and reminiscence and are simple 13 or 24 piece jigsaws intended to build a story that dementia patients and their carers can share.

We believe this is the first such library project nationally - all are welcome to attend the event and launch and see the 12 puzzle designs.
The full programme for the festival is at www.hackney.gov.uk/dementia-festival.
