The Sacramento Public Library will address the growing population of people living with Alzheimer's disease and concern around Alzheimers disease. They will educate the community on ways to lower the risk for dementia; provide participants with the opportunity to create Fidget Blankets for those living with Alzheimers; offer Brain Health kits, filled with puzzles, games, and prompts to exercise the brain; participate in outreach events throughout the community to share information on brain health; hold blood pressure drop-in clinics to educate the public about the connection between high blood pressure and dementia; and feature Alzheimers-related books to engage readers of all ages to learn more about the disease.
