St Ives – Reminiscence at the Norris Museum

Back to Activities

Reminiscence at the Norris Museum is a support group for those who live with dementia or their carers who enjoy reminiscing, sharing stories and handling objects from the past to stimulate memories and conversations.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • Meeting other people with similar experiences helps to tackle loneliness and isolation
  • The sessions provide emotional support for carers and family members.
  • Having the opportunity to engage with the past, seeing it brought to life with amazing objects and fascinating stories provides a learning experience in a fun space.

What to expect

Reminiscence concentrates on what people can remember rather than what they cannot! It is also an activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages.
