Thanks to a grant from the Wyrde Croft Wind Farm Community Fund the Museum of Technology can now offer Reminiscence Sessions in the newly furnished Community Room. Groups of up to 10 people from Care Homes and Dementia Groups are invited to use the resources on offer. The session will be led by qualified leader.
The museum has three boxes containing objects that can be used as memory prompts. Our boxes contain a collection of replica and genuine artefacts, documents and pictures; everything is designed for respectful handling.
The charge is £3.00 per person; this includes tea/coffee and biscuits. The museum will be open for viewing by the group.
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.
For any information regarding the Reminiscence Sessions Contact Rosie or phone 01945 700772.
There are three boxes, each of which contains images and objects from the 1940's and 1950's which people can handle. Each box explores a different theme:
