Typically found on Hospital Wards or in Care Homes – Reminiscence Rooms are therapeutic portals to the past that renew comforting memories for older patients and those with dementia—inspiring conversation and relaxation.
Reminiscence rooms are a time portal to the past, filled with soothing features, cosy seating, and resources that comfort those who feel out of touch in their modern surroundings.
These nostalgic settings provide an excellent platform for users to channel their beloved memories, and through Life-Story Work, they can start to uncover the person they used to be. By activating memories and the positive emotions associated with them, reminiscence rooms are a soft and comforting form of sensory therapy.
Reminiscence Rooms usually include:
Calming mood lighting
Vintage art and memorabilia
