Dementia Support

Cognitive Care Kits

Cognitive Care Kits are a support tool for the caregivers of people living with dementia. The kits are designed to help families connect through simple sorting, trivia, picture recognition and reading activities. Several themes are available based on personal interests (food, activities, animals, household items).

Anyone with a Middlesex County Library card in good standing can borrow a Cognitive Care Kit. Kits can be requested by emailing or by asking library staff at your local branch for assistance.

Learn more about the kits by reading our Guide to Cognitive Care Kits.

Dementia Friendly Collection

These books are designed specifically for adults with dementia and are formatted for easy reading.  They feature brightly coloured photos and use simplified language without being juvenile.  The stories and pictures prompt conversation and sharing between the individual and their family, friends, and caregivers. 

These books can be found at the Dorchester, Glencoe, Komoka, Lucan, Parkhill and Strathroy Libraries, or by searching "dementia friendly" in our online catalogue.  Place a hold on any title to have it sent to the library branch of your choice.
