About This Event
LACONI Programs, Outreach and Promotions section is pleased to offer a webinar for library staff who serve older adults, people with dementia, and their caretakers.
Libraries have enormous potential to support people with dementia and their caregivers, and demand for dementia-friendly library services is only likely to increase in the future. Have you considered these questions for your library?
How is this increasing demographic affecting your library and community?
How can you serve this growing population?
Explore innovative examples to meet the needs of this population from three professionals with outstanding experience in this area:
Tina Williams, Outreach Services Manager, White Oak Library District
David Kelsey, Outreach Services Librarian, St. Charles Public Library
Glenna Godinsky, Manager of Life Enrichment Services, Gail Borden Public Library District
During this webinar you will:
Increase your understanding for meeting the unique needs of caregivers and those suffering with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Discover successful strategies for delivering services through programming, in-house kits, collections, and memory cafes.
This program will be recorded.
