Library of Things: Dementia Friendly Collection

Library of Things: Dementia Friendly Collection

The Reading Public Library has added three items for adults with dementia to the Library of Things collection.

 

These items are designed to bring comfort and companionship to elder loved ones.  Benefits are an increase in social engagement, decreased loneliness, and the provision of comfort for a better quality of life.

Adults and their caregivers can borrow any of these or any other item from the Library of Things collection.

The Reading Public Library participates in Dementia Friendly Reading, a program that empowers those with dementia and their caregivers to feel valued and actively engaged in our community.   For more information about DFR, please go to their website.
