What is a Reminiscence Activity Kit?
Reminiscence Activity Kits contain a collection of new and authentic vintage memorabilia carefully selected to aid in invoking pleasant memories and enhancing quality of life.
Life Memories Renewed Reminiscence Activity Kits contain a collection of tactile, auditory, and visual items that:
They are simple to use and can be effective therapeutic tools for facility care plans, and family and informal caregivers. Our Kits can be used by family members, and in an individual or group setting by retirement community activity directors.
Life Memories Renewed Reminiscence Activity Kits are on display at the St. Louis, Missouri chapter Alzheimer's Association and are utilized by the chapter's educational staff in training sessions for retirement community personnel.
Our Reminiscence Kits have been designed by Karen Bono, a Gerontologist with a Masters in Gerontology. Ms. Bono has worked in the aging field for over 20 years, and is an active member of the Missouri Geriatrics Society, Social Workers in Long Term Care association, Professionals in Retirement Community Living, and the Breakthrough Coalition, a group of elder care agencies in St. Louis, MO. She also has assisted nursing home and retirement community activity directors with various activities conducted for all residents, including those with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
