Please allow us to create an account for your library. You can order online and choose as payment option, “Purchase Order – Business Clients Will be Invoiced”. It is a simple process; once we have a chance to get your company into our system we will ship your order and invoice your company. It usually takes a few hours or a day or two at the most. We only ask that you pay the first invoice as soon as is convenient. After that we will have you on Net30 terms.

LIBRARY PROFESSIONALS & THE DEMENTIA FRIENDLY LIBRARY
A recent article in the Pierce County Herald featured a program instituted by the Ellsworth Public Library (Wisconsin). Under the guidance of Library Director, Tiffany Meyer, the library assembled a number of kits which contain activities specially selected to appeal to older adults in their community who have dementia. “One struggle with dementia can be for friends and family members to figure out how to continue having meaningful interactions with a loved one who is experiencing dementia,” Ms Meyer said. “Many of the items in the kits were purchased from Best Alzheimer’s Products’ website,” she continued. “These kits have the potential to help many people.” Read more» about the interview with Tiffany Meyer.
The local library is an ideal point from which a community can reach out to those in its population who have dementia. Library professionals and libraries all over the country are using our services and activities to benefit that special needs group. We spent thousands of hours searching for and creating activities that are appropriate and valuable to people with dementia. Additionally, many of the things in our store provide measurable therapeutic benefits.
Why Library Professionals?
Much of our inventory, especially some of our videos and activity books, is appropriate for the general population as well; not just people with dementia. For example, the Sentimental Reflections collection, for instance, provides nostalgic reminiscence for older adults in general, and in younger people these videos instill an appreciation of our country’s (U.S.A.) heritage. Our exercise videos are intended for an elderly audience with or without dementia. And our extensive collection of Nature Videos lend a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere to any setting.
We even have a line of adaptive furniture. The chairs and tables in this group especially will enhance the visit of patrons with mobility issues.
Just below we have recommended some categories of products as well as some individual products that we think you, as a library professional, will like. Please browse the entire store for more ideas, and if you can’t find what you are looking for, give us a call – 847/223.3021.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
- Wow! This is all so new to us. My mother in law came to live with us 3 months ago with stage 3 alzheimers. I am the major caregiver, bathing, feeding, meals, laundry, meds, activities but my husband is getting better at helping. I found your site when a friend suggested “toys for Alzheimer’s” and will definitely be coming back for more. Thank you for all the links and great products too. Paula
