Reminiscence Therapy - Handyman Collection DVD

Favorite Things – Handyman Collection DVD


Favorite Things is a series of DVDs created for the enjoyment of those with dementia, their caregivers and family in order to provide comfort and inspire connections and conversation through reminiscence.

Through reminiscence we find comfort in our favorite things and form connections with people and the past.  The Handyman Collection brings with it the fond memories of home ownership and the hard work of upkeep.  Whether crafting a heirloom piece of furniture, or pulling weeds, each experience is an investment in time which makes your house a home.  If you learned to change your own oil, or helped out in changing a flat tire, share experiences while reminiscing. The videos are slow changing slideshows of both photos and video clips with an easy to use menu.  Soothing and happy background music provides comfort and brings joy to your environment.
