The Dementia Care Collection is designed for people living with dementia and their carers.
The collection features a range of materials like photobooks, puzzles, tools, and other objects designed to provide stimulation and keep the mind active. These materials help people living with dementia find pleasure and relaxation by offering valuable and varied mental stimulus.
Items are categorized as a Reminiscing Kit (to prompt memories of the past); a Sensory Kit (items that can be held and handled to prompt the senses) and an Activity Kit (items that can be ‘played’ with such as games, etc). In the catalogue, all of the entries will have ‘Dementia Resource’ in brackets in the title.
Items may be borrowed like any other ERL item (3-week loan period, with two renewals). However, items must be reserved; library members can browse the collection here.
