Reminiscence is beneficial for those at various stages of memory loss and individuals with communication difficulties. It can also be a great social, creative and learning tool for all ages.

Our Memory Boxes have been carefully put together to include a variety of multi-sensory items intended to trigger memories and help guide conversations about the past. Themes include:

  • World War II
  • The 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s
  • London
  • Entertainment
  • Pastimes and Home
  • Travel and Holidays

The contents of each themed box are packed into a sturdy suitcase which is easy to carry whilst protecting the items against damage.
