Memory Kits for Seniors

@ Shawn Lamb Archives, Touchstones Nelson

Saturday, Sept. 24, 11 am to 2 pm

Join project manager Nicole Tremblay as she introduces Touchstones Nelson’s Memory Kits for Seniors to the public.

The project, funded by New Horizons for Seniors Program, has created four Memory Kits based on the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

Each kit is available to loan to seniors groups for hands on discovery of long lost memories through multi-sensory stimulation.

Each Kit can be explored through the senses of sight, touch, smell and sound and are interactive, focused collections of memorabilia, specifically selected to engage the user in guided reminiscence.

Based on the themes of play, school, work and recreation, each kit has artifacts, photos, newspaper articles and sound to engage and stimulate memory and storytelling.

The public is invited to come and explore the various kits and share their memories on Saturday Sept. 24 at the Shawn Lamb Archives from 11 am to 2 pm.
