Reminiscence and memory

“Our residents enjoyed talking about old times and sharing their memories. By looking at objects from childhood, they were able to recall events and moments in their lives. This is always a nice group activity too, a chance for them to interact with each other.”

Manager, Solent Grange

This well-recognised and popular form of memory therapy has a noticeable impact on participants’ mood and cognition – after all, everyone likes to share their stories.

These reminiscence sessions can help improve your residents’ ability to interact, as they share their personal memories. Numerous themes are explored, using photographs, objects and music from Independent Arts’ memorabilia collection.
