Reminiscence Collection

Reminiscence Collection

Reminiscence can help to re-awaken people's memories of their experiences and lives and is particularly helpful for older people and people with dementia. We have some wonderful resources in our reminiscence collection, including over 200 reminiscence packs.

Our Reminiscence Collection consists of books and 200 packs of objects, music CDs, books, photographs, jigsaws or replica items on different themes. Items from the collection can be used in a group setting or one-to-one. It is ideal for care homes, carers and family members.
