Elder Care Collection

IMG_7954 IMG_7957 IMG_7958An estimated 43.5 million caregivers provide care to a family member or friend age 50 or older. Caregiving for an elder with dementia or Alzheimer’s can be especially challenging.

The Georgetown Public Library has gathered some resources to help support caregivers of older adults. The Elder Care Collection is located on the second floor, inside the Reference area.

Caregivers can check out picture books designed to be read to adults with dementia or Alzheimer’s, and also books or DVDs about medical, financial, and emotional issues of concern to caregivers.

Like most library materials, the books will check out for 3 weeks, and the DVDs will check out for 2 weeks.
