The Memory Box Network is a charity that brings together the power of social media and reminiscence therapy to provide a new digital service designed to enrich the quality of life of all those affected by dementia.
Reminiscence is the recollection of memories from the past. We all do it and it can be used for the benefit of others. For people with reminiscencing can be highly beneficial to their well-being and social skills. Reminiscence involves swapping memories old and young, friends and relatives, with caregivers and professionals, passing on information, wisdom and skills. It is about giving the person with Dementia a sense of value, importance, belonging, power and peace.
