  • INTRODUCTION The Special Needs Library Service provides a library service to residential homes, nursing homes, day centres and warden controlled housing throughout Lincolnshire. Part of the Service provides a back-up to activities organised in the establishments by means of a collection of reminiscence resources. Reminiscence can be of particular importance to older people for a number of reasons. It can enhance a persons feeling of self-worth and esteem; help in recognising the individuality of a person; and not least can be an enjoyable and stimulating experience. The Service also holds a collection of books aimed at care staff and activity organisers. These include ideas for quizzes and activities, and books on working with clients with dementia. If you would like to borrow any of the items listed, please contact the Community Librarian: Special Needs. The items will normally be sent to your nearest library for collection.
