CSL in Session: Dementia 101 for Public Library Staff (Colorado State Library)
More than 6 million people in the United States have dementia. Once you add in 15 million friends, family members, and caregivers, the numbers represent a significant segment of the population served by public libraries. This means that the dementia community is already in your library. The question is not will you serve this community, but will you serve it well? Your staff encounters people with dementia daily. This interactive session will help public library staff understand dementia and develop effective communication strategies. It will also provide ideas about programs and services for this growing population of patrons.
