Reminiscence activities work wonderfully when traditional, authentic objects can be looked at and handled.
Activities To Share have carefully selected a collection of memorable household items which have been tried and tested extensively with adults with dementia in Care Homes and Day Centres.
Reminiscence therapy encourages older people with memory problems to talk about their past and share their experiences.
To help stimulate conversation we have included laminated conversation cards with details about each item and suggested questions to help trigger memories.
This box will prove to be an essential dementia resource for carers and activity coordinators in Care Homes and Day Centres.
Vintage style Box contains:
16 authentic items including: 1960s pound note; darning mushroom; yoyo; lavender oil; shaving brush; skipping rope; tape measure; dummy; tea strainer; ration book; thimble; old penny on postcard; carbolic soap; dolly peg; rolling pin; spinning top; contents list and conversation cards.
