Offering older people a creative outlet and a break from routine can have astounding results.
Cascade’s Reminiscence Workshops bring the older generation’s personal stories to life through a
series of gently encouraging techniques designed to stimulate participants and free their memories.
The effects of these workshops are clear – participants visibly gain self-esteem, confidence and a
sense of their importance in the community.
Carers gain real personal and professional satisfaction too - and these benefits last.
Bringing older and younger people together in a workshop can have even greater effects.
The divide between the generations is narrowed, giving all participants a more positive view
of other generations.
