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.
Diving back into our pasts can be a comforting experience, especially for those with degenerative brain conditions, like dementia, where the present can quickly become a scary and unusual place.
Reminiscence rooms are a time portal to the past, filled with soothing features, cosy seating, and reminiscence resources that provide comfort for those who feel out of touch with their modern surroundings.
These nostalgic settings provide an excellent platform for users to channel their beloved memories, and though Life-Story Work can start to uncover the person that they used to be. By activating memories and the positive emotions associated to them, reminiscence rooms are a soft and comforting form of sensory therapy.
