Reminiscence Activities

posted by: Ashcroft, on 14th November 2011

Last week we had a work experience pupil from Sydenham Girls, Jonelle, who came to spend the week with us.  Jonelle wanted to work on a reminiscence project with the residents.  So on Friday we produced personalised reminiscence activities for some of the residents.  Titles included:

  • Movie Stars from the 40’s-50’s
  • Jamaica
  • Beauty products from the 40’s-50’s
  • Toys from the 40’s
  • London Landmarks

The use of objects from the period, smells, and pictures really helped to bring back the memories.  We then enjoyed discussing all the subjects, asking questions, listening to anecdotes and hearing so many wonderful stories.
