|Joanna and Janette delivering reminiscence activities|
What is reminiscence work or therapy? It is recalling past events with the help of old photographs, newspaper clippings, videos of old films or familiar items. It can be done on an individual (person centred) or group basis and by using family or generic pictures or objects from a certain era.
It's all about getting to know a person and what the person's interests are. Never assume what someone 'might' like. We are all individuals with different likes; dislikes; hobbies and interests.
Mind Crafts has high standards when it comes to delivering person-centred activities. Our volunteers are amazing and we are so proud of you; Janette; Maureen and Joanna!
