The Museum of Technology offers a Reminiscence Loan Box Scheme.

The loan boxes contain objects thatcan be used as memory prompts, ideally for the use of carers with older people in care. Our boxes contain a collection of replica and genuine artefacts, documents and pictures, everything is designed for respectful handling.

Reminiscence therapy is a powerful way of helping empower people with dementia by accessing long-term memories. It can bring pleasure, stimulation and meaning, and has the potential to lift depression and improve communication.
