Mae Darllen yn Well Llyfrau ar Bresgripsiwn ar gyfer dementia yn argymell llyfrau a allai fod o gymorth i chi os oes gennych ddementia, os ydych yn gofalu am rywun sydd â dementia neu os ydych am wybod mwy am y cyflwr.

Mae’r llyfrau yn darparu gwybodaeth a chyngor, cefnogaeth i fyw’n well, cyngor ar gyfer perthnasau a gofalwyr, a hanesion personol. Maent wedi eu cymeradwyo gan weithwyr iechyd proffesiynol ac maent ar gael yn eich llyfrgell leol.

Mae Llywodraeth Cymru yn ein cefnogi i gyflwyno Darllen yn Well ym mhob un o’r 22 awdurdod llyfrgell yng Nghymru. Rydym yn gweithio gyda Chyngor Llyfrau Cymru i wneud yn siŵr bod teitlau ar y rhestr ar gael yn y Gymraeg am y tro cyntaf erioed.
