New to the Library of Things: Memory Care Kits
The Memory Care Kits at the Bowen Library are designed to stimulate the brain activity in people experiencing cognitive decline, including memory loss and forms of dementia like Alzheimer’s disease.
Each kit includes games, puzzles, books, art projects, sing-along music, and other fulfilling activities that are designed for the person’s success. They are meant to be explored together with a caregiver, and encourage social connection, exercise the mind, and help the user retain skills.
Anyone with a library card may check out a Memory Care Kit, or place a hold from our catalogue. The lending period is 3 weeks.
