Remembering Yesterday Caring Today is a series of two hour reminiscence sessions offered to people with dementia together with their family carer(s). We meet once a week on a Monday afternoon for 12 weeks, exploring life from the cradle onwards.
Music, drama, drawing, singing, dancing and good conversation will all be used to create a light-hearted atmosphere for sharing memories and bringing families closer together. Experience shows that sharing past memories about relationships, life events and activities helps support these relationships in the present. The sessions will be lead by Pam Schweitzer, the founder of Remembering Yesterday Caring Today. She is a skilled and experienced facilitator. Each session will be supported by trained volunteers who all have an understanding of dementia, group work and the art of reminiscence.
