Books, DVDs, and CDs are available on a variety of topics including brain health, symptom management, emotional health, family support, disease information, and more. 

How does the resource library work?

  • Our lending library is for those living in our chapter footprint in central and western NC who have Alzheimer's, their friends & families, and health professionals.  It is a free resource.
  • Up to two (2) items at a time may be checked out. Additional items listed on the order will need to be re-ordered upon the return of the first set of materials. 
  • All items are mailed based on availability. If the item(s) you requested is currently checked out by other members, we will keep you updated as they become available. If the item(s) is coming in shortly, we may hold your order so that we can ship it complete.
  • Items are loaned out for four (4) weeks. Please return items as soon as you are finished with them so others can enjoy them as well.
  • Each shipment will come with a postage-paid return envelope so items may be returned at no cost to you.

Grandpa Doesn't Know It's Me

Grandpa Doesn't Know It's Me

Grandpa Doesn't Know It's Me
Book by Donna Guthrie

A sensitive portrayal from a child's point of view, of a family's experience with Alzheimer's Disease.  A little girl narrates the gradual changes in her grandfather and the family's recognition of and experiences with the disease. She tells of changes in his interests, capabilities and interactions with his family, from the earliest signs to the point where he must be placed in a daycare situation.  Not only an excellent introduction to the symptoms and changes that come with Alzheimer's Disease, this book also speaks to the emotions that a child feels when a loved one is slowly debilitated by any serious illness.
