Cognitive Care Kits (NEW!)

Cognitive Care Kits offer a unique service to under-served members of our community. This project is designed to support caregivers and people living with dementia or other cognitive impairments.  

In partnership with The Alzheimer’s Society of Durham Region, Cognitive Care Kits help support the skills, abilities, and interests of people living with forms of cognitive impairment, as well as to support caregivers. 

Our collection of 8 engaging dementia friendly kits contains activities, workbooks, games, and puzzles that help develop and maintain cognitive skills, focus on social engagement, and for success with daily activities.  

Kits focusing on the following are available for various levels (early-middle stage, and middle-late stage):

  • Conversation, Fun and Games
  • Memory and Conversation
  • Motor Skills and Dexterity
  • Sensory Stimulation

Each kit includes an assortment of activities (5-7), instructions for caregivers, instructions on how to use each activity, and resources from the Alzheimer’s Society of Durham Region. 

Borrowing and Use

  • Cognitive Care Kits may be borrowed for 4-week loans;
  • Holds and renewals are permitted, provided no one is on the hold list;
  • In the case of loss or damages, the member's account will be billed.
