The sensory stimulation items, which caregivers and volunteer companions can borrow at no charge, provide activation for the person who has dementia.

All activities within the Centre are geared to persons with impaired cognition. Games, old-time music, mental stimulation exercises and videos are a few of the activities that are within the Centre.
