A popular collection of 22 postcards featuring everyday household activities from twin tubs and mangles, to darning and feeding the chickens.
They are so much more than just a reminiscence product (although they can be very usefully used to that purpose - as a group/individuals/families/intergenerational). You can use the postcards to help build up a 'map of life' of individuals with dementia. Using them as visual prompts to gain an insight into the persons past memories. This information then becomes useful when making an individual activity plan for that person (families, CQC & social workers).
