They may take little time to set up. Make your own lists and save your favorite materials related to Alzheimer's. Stay connected with other caregivers by sharing what you've found.

LibraryThing is third-party software that allows you to catalog your Alzheimer's books online, for example, and access your catalog from anywhere. Some small libraries that do not have an online catalog are using LibraryThing, as well as bigger libraries to allow patrons to rate and review their library's collection.
When you download LibraryThing, you can add up to 200 books for free. Type the names of titles or download from Amazon, the Library of Congress or hundreds of other libraries. Share with your family and friends or link your catalog to your Facebook page. Paid personal accounts cost $10 for a year or $25 for a lifetime.
