For the summer of 2018, House of Memories has developed a new range of seasonal ‘Sense of Summer’ memory baskets to enable carers and people living with dementia to enjoy sharing summer time memories together, and to stimulate communication about the past.
The items in the ‘Sense of Summer’ memory baskets have been inspired by the great outdoors in the summertime, bringing together items related to gardening, home-grown produce and summer picnics.
Inside the baskets, there are objects for reminiscence, garden-themed activities, and information about planning gardening and outdoors projects to improve the health and wellbeing of people living with dementia.
