Your library became a Dementia Friendly Community Supporter in 2019, after receiving training through the Alzheimer Society of Hastings-Prince Edward. Since then, we have been working to introduce new resources to our community that can help caregivers and those living with dementia.
One of the items that we have prepared are Cognitive Readers. These can be signed out with your library card and are available for browsing in the Adult Collection.
Each kit contains two copies of a story that have been printed in a style designed for use by those experiencing cognitive difficulties. Ideally, these kits can be shared with a caregiver.
We plan to continue introducing more resources that make your library dementia-friendly. Please be in touch with us if you have any questions about these initiatives.
