Reminiscence Tea Parties for Care Homes or Day Care Centres
Facilitated by two lovely ladies in 50’s style dresses, we bring one of our 12, themed reminiscence boxes (see schedule below) to share with your residents/centre users. We are with you for 2 hours.
These boxes are full of original period memorabilia, music, perfumes and clothes.
We facilitate a fully interactive reminiscence session including sing-alongs and quizzes, encouraging verbal interaction and listening to memories, mindful of the needs of those living with dementia. We then serve a vintage style tea with (commercial, sealed and dated) period style cakes in our beautiful vintage china.
Possibly, best of all we take all the china away to be hygienically dish-washed, leaving you no extra work.
All we ask from you on the day is hot water and chilled milk, plus any assistance from carers that your residents/centre users, living with dementia may need, to fully access and enjoy the whole experience. This may include, providing assisted drinking cups, diabetic cakes or biscuits and carers adding any necessary sweeteners and thickeners. A carer is required to be present at all times and knowledgeable regarding dietary needs of all participants.
