Our reminiscence group Silver Foxes (aimed at older people)continues and welcomes new participants.
The group will be based at Brooke Mead Sheltered Housing Scheme in Brighton but is open to anyone over 60 years of age.
The group meets on Tuesdays every week from 11-12pm. We will be exploring life memories, local history, trying new activities including boccia, table tennis and chair yoga to encourage participants to try new things, improve their memories and meet new people – oh and tea and biscuits of course!
Training We’re working with two new clients this spring, both in West Sussex to deliver bespoke reminiscence training to staff and volunteers in the area. The first is with Arundel Museum for their ‘Reaching Out’ project.
The second will be delivering five training days at different libraries for the West Sussex Libraries Service between March and May 2019.
If your organisation would like to access training tailored specifically for your staff or participants, we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch for a quote!
