This article outlines the importance of library programming for the community. The programs that are focused on primarily are those that are designed to help those afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease and their families/caregivers to feel less isolated. Programs such as the Memory Project in Waukesha Counties, Wisconsin have enjoyed a great participation rate and successfully helped form new bonds within the community.
I enjoyed this article because I myself have known family and friends who have suffered with Alzheimer’s disease and I saw firsthand how difficult it was for their families. I feel that programs like the Memory Café are great resources for caregivers and sufferers alike to not feel so isolated when dealing with this devastating disease.
