Memory Minders kits for caregivers available at Ramsey County Library
Memory Minders, special kits for caregivers who are caring for people experiencing memory loss, are now available at the Ramsey County Library locations in Roseville and Shoreview.
The kits contain materials used to spark memories, create conversations and provide positive and engaging interactions between clients and their caregivers. Kits are divided into high, middle and low activity levels.
Each kit is unique and features a variety of items such as:
- An interactive activity for those with memory loss (puzzle, bingo, games or conversation cards).
- A book with color illustrations created for individuals with memory loss.
- A CD with music to soothe and spark memory.
- A Caregiver's Guide to Dementia by Laura Gitlin, which explores use of activities and other techniques to prevent, reduce and manage behavioral symptoms of dementia.
Memory kits can be checked out for three weeks. They are also renewable and can be requested via the Ramsey County Library catalog.
