Alive Guided Reminiscence sessions are designed to help residents relive their most important memories. We guide using technology, images and objects to explore memories and spark meaningful conversation.
The internet is an unlimited resource for reminiscence materials and it enables us to respond instantly to requests, so the content of the session is in the hands of the participants. We use sites such as Google Earth, and Google Street View to reconnect with important places from their past, Wikipedia to pursue their interests and YouTube to search for and play films that residents recognise from their youth.
Reminiscing in a group encourages communication which enables people to learn about each and create connections based on shared interests.
