Remembering Together: Making a life history book

 

Life History Course.jpg

Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage is running a course Remembering Together: Making a life history book course this autumn.

A life history book is a homemade booklet compiled to capture memories and stories about a person’s life, whether to mark a significant birthday, a change in circumstances, the onset of Dementia or as a beautiful and creative gift for a loved one.

Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage will deliver a series of four workshops to support you to create a life history booklet for a family member’s life. This takes place on Thursdays 10am-1pm in November (2nd, 9th, 16th & 23rd November) 2017.

Thanks so much for such a wonderful, inspiring and beautifully run day and thanks for your warmth and generosity. Thanks for the materials and hope we meet again soon. Course participant

More information:

Making a life history book can be an enjoyable and empowering activity for a person with dementia which may enable greater interaction and open up communication between someone with dementia and their carers, family and friends. A life history book may be something that visitors can look through with a person, or it can be referred to by professionals to learn more about the person they are providing care for.

The course can only accommodate 8 participants to create a supportive atmosphere so please book early to avoid disappointment. The cost is £100 (£80 concession) for the four week course which is three hours per week. The course will include the work book, resources, planning, materials and refreshments, as well as interim support and suggestions if needed.

Vision boards help to:
* Set and prioritise goals, values, and intentions.
* Plant goals and intentions
* Seeing a vision board regularly—with images and words representing your goals, wishes, and values—helps remind you of what you want to do, be, and have.
