Many Islanders live alone or in residential homes, often disconnected and lonely. Providing opportunities for them to talk, remember, laugh and reconnect helps them maintain a vital sense of identity in sometimes unfamiliar surroundings.
Our Reminiscence sessions involve taking household, farming and occupation objects from our Museum Store at Augres to care homes across Jersey. Jason and Stuart from our Archive Team spend time talking about the objects with the residents. There’s plenty of laughter and sometimes tears, the sharing of fond memories and the telling of amazing personal stories. These sessions are vital to so many in our community.
Help us host more of these sessions. Together we can make a positive difference for more of our elderly Island residents.
