Reminiscence

Reminiscence with FashionOur reminiscence sessions are popular and help rekindle memories using objects and images from our handling collections. There are many benefits for older people including: understanding and knowing who we are, providing a vivid topic of conversation, providing opportunities for positive achievement, increasing confidence and gaining new skills, amongst others.

For staff, it is a way of appreciating the individuality of people, being creative and giving time for conversation amongst the day to day physical care tasks.

If you or your group are interested in reminiscence sessions, please get in touch. Please contact the Community Outreach team or email museumvisits@plymouth.gov.uk.
