How To Structure Reminiscing Sessions For Seniors

Our facility had a recent visit from a community craft group. For a change we had a kitchen reminiscing morning tea. Lovely sponges for morning tea and utensils from the kitchen. Had a lovely array of vintage items from the kitchen that prompted lots of conversation. Residents also continued talking about this activity the next day. Enjoyed by all.

Has anyone organised a memorial service for a resident. Looking for suggestions of songs, poetry or readings. Will be only a small service for the residents to attend.
Thanks Kerry

Baby clothes to fold and sort. Some hand knits spark conversation. Also texture and softness they love.

Word Bingo

Love bingo afternoons. I put together a special bingo for the queens jubilee. Black&white illustrations of family members including favourite horse, dogs, royal landmarks and countries (sovereign). Created lots of conversation and enjoyment.

Hi vitty
A paper plate is a good framework to start with. Two plates together make it stronger. Recycling cards that express their interests eg flowers, pets, fishing to glue on. You can fill with paper flowers, favourite colours, buttons, footy teams ect. Being able to choose and reminisce will lead you to their likes and dislikes. These can be made to be seasonal or events by colours and pictures
Good luck
