Streamwood library now offers Memory Center collection for seniors
The Poplar Creek Public Library in Streamwood has created a new collection called the Memory Center, aimed at those who have a cognitive disorder or dementia, along with their caregivers.
"It is also a valuable resource for anyone looking to improve their brain or memory health," said Senior Services Librarian Erin Isaacson.
Housed in the collection are materials with information on different forms of dementia (including Alzheimer's disease), memory/brain health, caregiving, memoirs of families/individuals with dementia, as well as DVDs relating to the topic of memory care.
The library also offers Boredom Busters, packets full of engaging activities that are changed out monthly.
In addition, the library has curated specific items and partnered with local dementia organizations to offer a wealth of vetted resources and take-aways to those in need.
"With materials that stimulate memory, conversation and staying active, it would be a great first stop or to use along the dementia journey," Isaacson said.
"Those who are interested can find the collection on the main level of the Main Library (1405 S. Park Ave., Streamwood), in the Reference Department."
