iRemember In the kitchen Memory Case

iRemember

The iRemember case is a free loan resource developed between TMAG and the Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre. The 16 objects within the case aim to assist people living with dementia and their friends, families, partners and carers to communicate more easily and enjoyably with each other. It’s about encouraging the telling of stories and the sharing of memories, using real objects to stimulate conversation and remembering.

The objects have been carefully selected and can be handled. There are cards relating to each object with additional information and discussion points which assist and encourage users to develop conversations and share experiences.
