Holiday Reminiscing at Parkalay way
December 23, 2020
Holiday Reminiscing is one of our favorite activities on Paraklay Way with our Reminiscing Programs. Reminiscence Programs consist of sharing life experiences, memories and stories from the past. Often people with dementia lose short-term memory, but they are still able to recall older memories.
This week we encouraged residents to share some holiday memories. We used pictures, stories, Christmas ornaments, music and filled the air with the smell of freshly baked Christmas cookies to trigger memories of the holidays. We learned our residents’ holiday traditions, heard funny stories about Santa, and even talked about cooking our favorite Christmas treats. Happy Holidays from the residents on Paraklay Way!
