Dementia Resources

A curated collection of materials for dementia patients and caregivers.

Dementia Resources Collection

Being a caregiver for a loved one with dementia can be scary and overwhelming. But there are loads of resources and services available.

It is very okay to ask for help! This disease is not something you can or should go through alone.

Our Dementia Resources Collection includes books and dvds for caregivers and family members, and reading materials for people living with dementia. We also have brochures and flyers for local and virtual support groups and educational programs.

Below you will find Helpful Contacts, Plan-Ahead Considerations, and Book Recommendations. For more information, contact Erin McCauley at
