Reminiscence Therapy and Resource Boxes
What is Reminiscence Therapy?
Reminiscence therapy is usually described as the use of triggers, that promote the recollection of life histories, or overall stimulation of them mind, with a very positive impact in overall well-being. The therapy has been used with people living with dementia, with very positive impact and results in their overall health, comfort and sense of security
What are Resource Boxes?
Resource boxes are themed boxed with a series of objects that through the stimulation of the 5 senses, trigger memory. Each box will allow for an intended, enjoyable journey through memory lane.
We carry over 40 themed resource boxes. From house keeping, new baby, home décor, school days, going shopping, Royal family, Christmas, car maintenance, Swinging 60`s, bonfire night, gardening, sports, to World War I and many, many other themes. We are always adding new themes to our resource centre and updating contents of existing boxes.
You may rent a resource box on a weekly basis and enjoy it for a maximum period of 21 days. If you are interested in taking them home or sharing them with your community group, then we invite you to become a member of our Triggerbank Loan Scheme for an annual, £60 membership fee.
Please either call our office on 01789 778431 or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can set up membership.
Examples of the boxes are shown below. We also have many historical picture books that date from before the First World War that may be rented.
