Reminiscence

The College of Occupational Therapists states ‘Older people in care homes are enabled to maintain and develop their personal identity’. In addition to this Care Fit for VIPs benchmarking tool for care homes, www.carefitforvips.co.uk, states ‘ that each resident and their loved ones are encouraged and helped to create a life story book, memory box or something similar’. Mindful Gifts CIC can support you to meet these recommendations by providing you with a range of reminiscence aids to choose from such as picture books, prompt cards and life story books. The activities are not only essential to developing individual’s personal identity but are also fun.
