Just back from a lovely reminiscence session at Tor Care Home. I’ve visited quite a few times before but it is always great to hear the amazing stories that people have. Today we were talking about leisure and going out. When I do reminiscence I usually take out boxes of objects to pass round and ask people to talk about the memories these things bring back to them. Today we chatted about trips to Portobello, Sunday school picnics, getting dressed up, going to the dancing and visiting Canada!
This evening is also going to be very exciting because I am going to the Children and Families Achievement Awards. A project I ran with Outlook (an organisation working with people accessing mental health services) to carry out visitor research for the museums has been nominated for an award! If you want to find out more about any of these projects please get in touch!
