This series of low cost and high quality reminiscence book and memory cards has been developed specifically to support the process of reminiscence and to allow people living with dementia to recall positive memories. They have been designed and modified following engagement with care home dementia specialists and local dementia champions. We feel they will provide a highly useful tool for both relatives and carers to aid effective, person centred care.
Containing 24 pages of colour illustrations from the 1940's to the 1970's, the chosen imagery reflects life from this period in a memorable and positive way.
The As We Were book features images of past fashions, high street trades people and workers from a variety of jobs and industries.
Included inside the book are black and white pages intended for colouring, bringing to life people past and memories shared.
Companion items available separately
Also available in the 'As We Were' set are a pack of 32 illustrated memory cards and a pack of 4, A3 colour posters.
