Reminiscing Kits for Seniors
Reminiscing Kits for Senior have been developed for individuals with memory issues and their caregivers. We hope these kits stir memories and spark conversation. The kits include activities that can be done individually or with someone. The kits feature different themes relating to various topics. For example, farming, cooking and baking, birds, games, quilting, fishing, etc.
These kits are available at the Dodgeville Public Library and may be checked out for up to 4 weeks. Each kit provides a multi-sensory activity; visual, auditory, and tactile.
There is no charge for damaged or lost pieces. We are aware cognitively challenged people may get a little too zealous with activities and even may hide items. We do not want anyone to be afraid to check out or use the kits for fear something may be damaged or lost.
The Aging & Disability Resource Center, Iowa County Health Department and Dodgeville Public Library worked on developing the kits. CrestRidge Senior Living provided additional funding for the kits.
