Memories at the Museum

Memories at the Museum has been created to help staff in care homes and folds to facilitate reminiscence sessions with their residents. It can also be used in other settings where reminiscence activities are being held for groups of older people.

The video features objects relating to the Second World War which can act as triggers to stimulate discussion in a reminiscence session.

The video is designed to be dementia-friendly but can also be used to stimulate enjoyable conversations with people who do not have dementia.
