The Halton Hills Public Library can connect you with resources related to your health and wellness.

Cognitive care kits

Cognitive Care Kits help support the skills and abilities of people living with a cognitive impairment from Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, or Huntington’s disease. The collection of fourteen unique kits contains a variety of prepared games, puzzles, creative activities and books that help exercise the mind, retain skills and encourage social engagement.

First time borrowers must attend an Introduction to Cognitive Care Kit session or watch the introductory video online. During this training each item is explained and demonstrated. After completing the session, you may borrow kits without attending another information session.
