People living with dementia are using your library every day: most of the over 5.8 million Americans with dementia still live at home, and fifteen million unpaid caregivers, family and friends, also need support. Research shows that reading ability persists even as dementia progresses, and other aspects of basic library services – social interaction, music and media materials, informational and recreational programming, lifelong learning – can positively impact the lives of these millions of older adults, and their care partners. Libraries, museums, and other cultural heritage institutions, in fact, have a wealth of “non-pharmacological interventions” to offer those living with dementia. Is your library prepared to meet the needs of this growing, but too-often forgotten, population? Panel presentations in the session “The Frontiers of Library Dementia Services” will introduce you to resources you can use, strategies to try, and program ideas you can apply in your library. Panelists will report on emerging best practices for staff training in the crucial areas of customer service and communication, information resources and reference, and collection development for mental and social stimulation. They will report on the evidence for the reading ability of people with dementia, and the therapeutic benefits for them of reading, artistic, and especially musical experiences, with examples in library programs. Finally, they will introduce you to Memory Cafés and a variety of other library programs that offer social interaction, mental stimulation, and reminiscence therapy. Attendees will receive the practical wisdom of librarians who are moving outside their comfort zones, working with the dementia community, and developing programs and services to meet their needs.
