Welcome to the William “Bill” Emery Caregiver Resource Center! 
A library for people living in central and western North Carolina

In support of our mission, we provide free access to accurate, current, and comprehensive information to people with Alzheimer's disease, family members, caregivers and health professionals through the Emery Resource Library. 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.

Losing My mind

Losing My mind

 An Intimate Look at Life with Alzheimer's, Thomas DeBaggio records in heartbreaking detail an expereince that few have recounted and no one hopes to share:  the onset of Alzheimer's disease.  Diagnosed one beautiful spring day at the age of 57, longtime journalist DeBaggio initially viewed the condition as a death sentence, but also knew he had a story he ought to tell.  While keeping up his family-run herb and plant business, he began work on his new project immediately, writing in his journal to capture the personal angle and researching the latest scientific information on still poorly understood disease.  This book is the devastating result.
