Reminiscence Therapy Visits to celebrate Positive Ageing Week
Positive Ageing Week, Clare County Library staff will visit Day Care & Community Centres and Nursing Homes around the county during the month of October with a selection of material from the Local Studies Library, including Clare Champion newspapers from times past, old photographs and books containing local interest material. Extracts will be read and discussed, evoking memories of times past and sparking lively debate on events that took place in the locality years before. This service allows the library to bring part of its valuable collection to people who are often not in a position to visit their local library. Centres scheduled for visits in October include Carrigoran Day Centre, Mowlam Nursing Home in Kilrush, Ennistymon Day Centre & Ennistymon Community Hospital and Raheen Day Centre & Raheen Community Hospital in Tuamgraney.
