The benefits of photo frames & memory boxes

In a number of our homes if you walk along the corridor you’ll find a profile outside a bedroom door. These profiles incorporating photographs and reminiscence information have two main roles. The first is to aid residents with dementia in finding their room and ensuring there is something familiar. The second is to provide a brief history of the residents life to inspire conversation between resident and staff.

It is possible for families to provide memory boxes to wall mount outside a bedroom. These boxes can be filled with favourite photos and familiar objects linked to half term memory that act as great conversation starters, as well as aiding residents make sense of their environment.

If you would like a memory tree profile, please speak to your Home Manager who will organise one for you or your loved one.
