Mindful Gifts CIC have had the pleasure in supporting the Black Country Living Museum (BCLM) develop reminiscence boxes which will be launched next week at the museum. If you work with people with dementia you are invited to the official launch of, the Reminiscence Boxes, on Tuesday 21 September to coincide with World Alzheimer’s Day. The event is planned to take place at the BCLM (10.30-12.30pm). All participants booked on the session will have the opportunity to explore the museum in the afternoon, if they wish.
These reminiscence boxes are sensory memory boxes inspired by Black Country History, available to hire as bookable sessions in residential care homes, schools and community groups.
Each box contains a series of objects relating to its theme, along with an operational guide to help the user create an engaging and inspiring session.
Pictured above: our first Reminiscence Box session, hosted in partnership with Sanctuary Care. Each box can be booked with a BCLM Historic interpreter to facilitate your session.
Our boxes are designed to work in a variety of settings. They can be used as part of reminiscence therapy sessions or can also be used as educational tools. To see if our boxes are right for your organisation and to find out how they can benefit you, we would love for you to join us on Tuesday 21 September to experience a taster session. Our team will talk you through how each box works and how it can benefit you and those that you work with.
