During this presentation attendees will learn the basics of Alzheimer’s and dementia including how it affects the family caregiver.
Marcy Rhodes will discuss how libraries can be pro-active in creating a welcoming environment for individuals with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers and families. In addition, she will discuss how to create effective programs to meet the needs of individuals with dementia such as memory cafés and arts related programs as well as programs and services to support family caregivers.
