Reminiscence, A Creative Approach

Zoom Sessions

Creative and Reminiscence Training for Care Professionals

It has given me the skills to prepare my own resources as well as using pre-made bags from our local library, which I didn’t know they did! Plus, it's given me lots of ideas on how to stimulate conversation, bring out old memories and have fun at the same time.

Participants will:

  • Gain ideas for one-to-one and group reminiscence work appropriate for the people they care for and their settings
  • Explore effective delivery methods and communication techniques for using reminiscence activities
  • Be able to identify common pitfalls and barriers to reminiscence activities, and ways of reducing and eliminating them
  • Gain practical and delivery skills for using objects, photographs and paper resources
  • Identify creative means, ways of making, and accessing suitable materials for reminiscence use
  • Plan an appropriate reminiscence activity that they can use and identify how it would be resourced
  • Identify ways of capturing feedback and information from your participants for the benefit of future care planning
