How To Structure Reminiscing Sessions For Seniors

I have done Wedding reminiscing twice in the last 5+ years and included our staff who have brought in Wedding items.
It is fantastic to compare costumes, photos, invitations etc from the different eras.
We have had residents who still have their wedding dresses and another man who had recently lost his wife and he was able to bring along her Wedding dress and photo (with his Daughter's help).
This is so much fun and well worth the time and effort involved.

Stringing Beads

Making stretch bangles using hat elastic works well also, although it can sometimes be difficult to thread the beads unless they have large holes.
Our residents love them for holding their hankies. If made well these last a long time.
If anyone has an easy way for threading the elastic please let me know as I usually do the threading but have the resident hand me the beads.
I will try your necklaces next. Thanks for the great ideas.
