Memory Care Kits

Douglas County Libraries has added Memory Care Kits to its collection of nontraditional items that library cardholders can check out. The kits include an assortment of books, DVDs, books on CD and hands-on activities such as puzzles and games that can help spark conversations, despite any age or generational gaps. 

“The Memory Care Kits are designed to trigger special memories of life experiences and encourage positive interactions between those affected by memory issues and their caregivers,” said Operations Director Sheila Kerber.
