Hartlepool Library Service has a range of 'Memory Boxes' specially designed for those caring for someone with memory loss. 

Each box contains a range of nostalgic items to stimulate long-term memory.  The contents include books, CDs, DVDs and objects, plus photographs from our local history collection.  Themes include 'work', shopping', 'the home', 'local pubs' and 'the seaside'.  The boxes are available for a free, four-week loan to individuals and not-for-profit organisations (library membership required).
