Dovetale Press carefully constructs books for the reader who might find standard books difficult because of certain health conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease, other types of dementia, or stroke. Classic literature has been specially selected and adapted by an applied linguist, Dr Gillian Claridge,
and a psychogeriatrician, Dr B. Sally Rimkeit, to enhance the joy of reading for people with cognitive impairment.
We support dementia-friendly communities and access to dementia-friendly books and book clubs at public libraries.
