Happy Days Dementia Activities & Design Teams Up With Age Concern Lancashire

We’re so proud that Happy Days Dementia Activities & Design has teamed up with Age Concern Lancashire¬†to make reminiscence and engagement materials available to everyone at home. The range of materials includes social activities to help prompt conversations: Time to Chat Cards, Snakes, Ladders & Chat, Match & Chat and more.

Reminiscing can really help prompt the long term memory and bring about meaningful conversations and stories to share. Here’s a few more engagement tips:

  • Make a memory box – collect small items and keepsakes from around your home
  • Create a mini photo album of events, holidays, funny moments – Write on the back
  • Tidy out drawers and cupboards together, one draw at a time …
  • Make a list of all the people you know
  • Phone friends and family – Keep in touch
  • Engage in daily light exercise or gentle movement to music together

Age Concern has provided a Coronavirus Support Line and are also looking for volunteers:
