The Blue Book provides a summary of activities and support for older people and people living with dementia
The Blue Book is a family project, a voluntary initiative, which came about through personal experience - I just felt there was a need to have something tangible of this nature where all the relevant information was in one place, particularly on diagnosis of dementia. First produced for West Northumberland in 2017, it has since expanded to cover the whole of Northumberland.
It is updated each year and circulated as digital and hard copies during Dementia Action Week, to frontline organisations, local GP practices and libraries, and other organisations across the region. To date we have distributed over 30,000 copies across Northumberland.
Our aim is to reach as many people as possible who may benefit from receiving a copy.
