Title:Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and LIS: Educating for Service to the Forgotten Patrons
Author(s):Dickey, Timothy
Subject(s):Alzheimer’s dementia
Caregiver support
Health informatics
Information services
Library programming
Abstract:LIS education has not prepared students to serve people living with Alzheimer’s and related dementias, a marginalized population of nearly 50 million worldwide. Healthy lifestyle choices such as mental and social stimulation are known to promote brain health and resilience, and these non-pharmacological interventions against dementia are already mission-critical within library services. Learn how LIS education for this underserved community can improve in key areas of practice – customer service, information services, collection development, and adult programming – and can prepare library professionals to meet the needs of those living with dementia and their caregivers.
