Creating your own memory kit, Florida style
This session demonstrates how to build a memory kit to use with seniors and families.
As an example, we use our own memory kit based on some of Florida's oldest tourist attractions, like Weeki Wachee Springs, Marineland and Bok Tower. We built the kit using photos from the award-winning Florida Memory website.
Watch the webinar to jump-start your own program.
