How can Reminiscing help older people and those with dementia?

For the elderly, reminiscing is a way to affirm who they are, what they’ve accomplished in their lives, and a chance to relive happy times. Talking about the past can encourage conversation and boost self-esteem.

FREE downloadable activity packs from our website. These packs and the hiring of loans boxes can be used to create your own sessions with real artefacts. 

All loan boxes have a two-week loan period,for a cost of only £20 plus VAT.  We are happy to drop off and collect the boxes from your facility.
