SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. (WMTV) -- The Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) recently provided the Sun Prairie Police Department with “comfort kits."

The bags contain a variety of items for first responders to use while in contact with people with dementia, according to the Sun Prairie Police department Facebook Page.

While on the surface they may seem to be children’s toys, research shows that these items can be very comforting to a person with dementia that is involved in a stressful situation, according to the department.
