Strike a Light – Arts & Heritage is running a course Remembering Together: Making a life history book course this autumn.
This is a four week course taking place on Thursdays 10am-1pm in September (7th, 14th, 21st & 29th September) 2017. You can find out more here.
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.
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.
