Reminiscence Therapy - Homemaker DVD with Photo and Activity Cards Kit


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 Homemaker Collection opens conversation and memories of keeping a living space clean while creating those special touches that make it a home.  If you learned to sew from a family member, or can recall the smell of clean sheets taken from the clothesline, you will enjoy these videos. 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.
