Memory Care Kits

Memory Care Kits

Troy Public Library received the 2016 Dick Johnston Award and used the $1,000 grant to form a new collection of materials oriented specifically toward dementia patients. These seven unique Memory Care Kits are designed to trigger special memories of life experiences and encourage interaction between patients and caregivers.
