Dear Amy,

 

Don't forget to have a look at GEM's own project, Sounding Out Your Heritage, which involved working with over 60s in small groups over several weeks exploring and sharing their personal histories to produce story books, audio CDs, leaflets & posters, and a memory box & sensory quilt.  It is clear that providing activities for older people involving reminiscence can have an overwhelmingly positive impact on their health and confidence, and dramatically improve the quality of their lives.  Full details are on the GEM website where you can download the resulting toolkit.  There are also some links to other organisations working with older adults.

Subject: Reminiscence projects

 

Dear all,

 

I'm currently working on updating our distance-learning programmes and I'm specifically looking for examples - hopefully from around the world - of recent reminiscence work and inter-generational projects that make use of reminiscence work.

 

I know that GEM members have been really generous with their time in the past, supplying  information and case studies for inclusion in the programmes, and so I'm hopeful you'll be able to help out this time too! Perhaps others might find it useful as well?

 

Many thanks,

 

Amy
