Scrapbook making for people with dementia explained.
Scrapbook making for people with dementia. Recently the use of the scrapbook as a tool for provoking memory recall has become widely recognised. Together with reminiscence therapy it provides a way of exploring the personal stories and life events which have been experienced by people with dementia.
Lana Morris explains the practicalities of scrapbook building in conversation with Mike Simmons, and tells how it enables especially people with early onset dementia to record and refer back to significant life events. She demonstrates the process with two colleagues who develop their own page of memories in the studio. Creating a scrapbook is a way for practitioners, family members and people with dementia to spend time together as they create a book of memories, and this DVD has been made to help with that process.
