Although Mindful Gifts CIC specialises in gift ideas and activities for people with dementia, we actually offer a lot more! Our shop that is set in the past brings back memories for people with dementia. However, set in the past also means vintage and nostalgic and that is interesting to everyone. When local filmakers wanted to shoot scenes for their 1970s film , we were more than happy to step in and offer our living room where customers normally have tea and cakes. We have loaned out items before for theatres so for films is just the next progressive step for us. Better still when we were asked to be extras in the film, it was anothe rstring to our bow.
We’ve put on Peaky Blinders and Titanic events before, so our costume wardrobe and props is really growing now. So how does all of this fit in with activities for people with dementia? Well ‘reminiscence’ and fun is the key factor. Remembering the past in different ways is beneficial to people with dementia and how you do that can be fun and very enjoyable!
