Reminiscence

Ref: C3741628

The course will introduce themes to inspire memories from the past that can be shared with the group. A few examples are Childhood and play, Parties, Christmas and other festivals, Pets and Music. It is hoped that some of the themes will come from the particular interests of the group. We will be using photos, music, film and other props to inspire us. The memories will be shared within the group and if individuals are interested in more focused activity (e.g. producing a book of memories or photographic display, etc.), help and support will be given them to do this. It is planned to go out as a group on an outing, hopefully once a term, the destinations of which will be decided at a later date.
