  • **The MIND Center can also schedule a time to come back and conduct an aging simulation for the Library Directors, utilizing the Age Play simulation kits that are currently used for Law Enforcement trainees.  This training gives a different perspective to many of the physical challenges associated with aging and may help inform the way Directors design activities and engagement in the future.
