In September 2013, members of the Roseville community formed an alliance to work to improve conditions for Roseville individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia (A/D) and their unpaid caregivers. The alliance is named the Roseville Alzheimer’s and Dementia Community Action Team. Participants in the alliance include community members, municipal staff, aging services professionals, and ISD 623 school district personnel.

The Roseville Alzheimer’s and Dementia Community Action Team and the Ramsey County Library branches in Roseville and Shoreview have combined forces to make new dementia-related materials available for caregivers. Both library branches have a caregiver reading collection for care partners of those with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or memory loss. The libraries have also added Memory Minders. Memory Minders are kits that contain activities specifically designed for use with patrons with memory loss, and were recently featured on Northeast Journal and KSTP-TV.
