Cognitive Care Kits

MPL's Cognitive Care Kits help support the skills and abilities of people living with dementia and other forms of cognitive impairment. Each kit contains up to ten unique, dementia-friendly activities such as games, workbooks, puzzles, and various prepared activities. The kits focus on the mind (cognitive), body (active), and spirit (creative), and were developed using the DementiAbility Montessori principles, proven to effectively engage with individuals living with dementia and their caregivers.


We currently have 6 kits; click here to view the available kits on our website. First time borrowers must attend a training session with a librarian, who will explain and demonstrate the kit and its benefits. Kits are free to take out with a Milton Public Library card, and are available to borrow at the second floor customer service desk at the Main Library. The loan period is 3 weeks (non renewable), but they can be exchanged for another kit. The kits must be returned to the Main Library.
