For Dementia Action Week, 17th-23rd May, our Older Adults’ Service (OAS) has been holding a 1950s themed week.
The team sent out a 1950s themed reminiscence pack and shared 1950s memorabilia (some of which was kindly lent to us by Chesham Museum) to provoke conversations.
OAS held a Zoom activity for service users and carers about 1950s music, which was a huge success. Service users and their carers talked about some of the favourite artists of the time and shared stories about buying and playing records.
Don, one of the wonderful OAS volunteers, has created a presentation about this Zoom activity, so that others can benefit from it:
