Promoting reminiscence in Care Homes
Testimonial from: Stacey Allen, Methodist Homes for the Aged, Stones Place Care Home, Lincoln
“Andrew visited the care home and presented “Bygone Lincoln – The City and County in Old Film” to our residents. They absolutely loved it. It was a great reminiscence activity and it had our residents chatting about it for days. Great feedback from all who attended and Andrew definitely knew his stuff. Would highly recommend.”
Andrew speaks from the front and then from a seat at the laptop when changing films. Above: the audience sees a bus come through Lincoln's Stonebow in 1929. Questions and reminiscences welcome. Shows last an hour. DVDs including the material can be purchased to stimulate ongoing discussion and reminiscence.
Fees are around £80 but vary dependent on travel time and expense. Call 01522 754901 to discuss.
