We were awarded funding from South Warwickshire CCG and Warwickshire County Council to run 10 weeks of reminiscence and music workshops for people living with dementia and their carers at Alcester and Kenilworth libraries. Orchestra of the Swan were our musicians and Warwickshire Reminiscence Action Project provided our handling objects and reminiscence workers. Each week was a different theme from work, school, holidays and dressing up and going out etc! The musicians played music based on the theme and encouraged people to sing along and dance. The handling objects sparked memories also from the 40’s, 50′ and 60’s. There was also a chance to socialise with others over a cup of tea and biscuits.
Alcester library from 10.30am to 12.30pm and Kenilworth library from 2-4pm
