Homes and day centres

reminiscence 1Our Residential Home Service provides an important link between your library and the many residents living in full or part time care across Staffordshire.

Books and audio books

Residential and nursing homes, sheltered accommodation and day centres for the elderly can receive boxed collections of large print and audio books, specifically chosen to meet the needs of your residents.

Reminiscence collections

We also have a wide range of reminiscence boxes with a variety of themes available to borrow. Reminiscence sessions are a great way to encourage conversation and interactivity with your residents; especially those suffering with conditions such as Dementia or Alzheimer’s. Our reminiscence boxes contain a mixture of materials, such as:

  • photographic books
  • games
  • activities
  • discussion prompt cards
  • handling items

These are ideal for group or one to one sessions and can help trigger memories of yesteryear.

Collections are swapped on a six monthly basis and can be delivered directly to the home or collected from your local library.

Enquiries
