Who are we?
WRAP – Warwickshire Reminiscence Action Project – was set up 20 years ago to support and train people caring for older people in our community and began its life under the control of Warwickshire’s Community Education Service.
Since then, WRAP’s support services have grown and adapted to their needs. We understand just how demanding looking after a loved one living with dementia can be. We’re here for you, whether it’s to lend an ear or help you access the training, funding and support you need.
It’s estimated that around 850,000 people are living with dementia in the UK and 650,000 people are caring for a loved one living with dementia of some form, which can be lonely and overwhelming. Together we hope to make the valuable job you are already doing that little bit easier.
What is Reminiscence
Reminiscence is what what we all do from time to time, chatting about past times, recalling memories and reliving experiences
Reminiscing creates a greater sense of wellbeing and is known to improve self-esteem and confidence. This in turn leads to improved quality of life for our loved ones and also leads to more supportive and engaged carers, volunteers and staff.
On this website you’ll find resources for dementia care from details about our memory box loan scheme, Reminiscence Therapy & Reminiscence Awareness training days and programmes to news about dementia-friendly trips and events.
If you cannot find what you are looking for, please contact us. Above all, if you’re looking after a loved one, remember you are not alone.
All our focus areas rely on face-to-face work. Because of the restrictions set out by the government we currently cannot meet up.
In the future we are looking into getting together via Zoom, so watch this space for details.
