I volunteer at a local community centre where I facilitate a Reminiscence group.
Most of the people born in the mid-late 1930s. Most of them were evacuated during WW2 and did not have much education during their teens, they do not have dementia. Most travel independently and look after themselves, but still like to remember.
We are based in London and I am wondering if you have or know where I can access resources that are relevant to them, they married/started work in the late 1940s, & 50s and have similar memories to me.
Most of what I have found is for those with dementia or Alzheimers, and is not very British.
I am also wondering if you have reccomendations as to how to manage a group of twenty or so for these activites, I am only with them for one hour at a time.
