Memory Kits are designed to facilitate hands-on discussion and reminiscence. The kit is comprised of items that touch on the five senses and may help individuals with dementia share memories and thoughts with their caregivers.
The Mercer Library has five memory kits each organized around a different theme: Christmas, babies, military service, gardening and travel. Other kits are available at our partner libraries and may be requested by asking for help at the library desk.
These memory kits were provided by a grant from the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) through Northern Waters Library Service.
