Wellbeing Programme

Memory Box Experience

Living Brands

You are warmly welcome to join our Living Brands creative reminiscing sessions, where our experienced guides bring the Museum displays to life with the help of products, sounds, and scents from the past. Sessions at the Museum are open for everyone, but specially designed for people living with dementia. Our outreach team is also available to lead reminiscing sessions for care homes and community groups in London.

 

 

Visitors reminiscing in the Time Tunnel

Carers & Families

Are you a part of a memory café, or an informal group of carers? Walk down memory lane and discover your favourite childhood toys and games, or the breakfast cereals and laundry powders from your family home. If your group cannot come to the Museum, our outreach team may be able to visit your group, and deliver an educational and entertaining talk about the history of brands, and how the Museum of Brands came about.

 

 

Volunteers Making Replicas

Training

Do you work with people living with dementia, whether in a care home, or a community group setting? Learn how to lead creative reminiscence sessions using multi-sensory household items inspired by the Museum of Brands. All attendees receive a Memory Box full of replica soaps, soup tins, and other household items from different eras, and a booklet of activities designed to be used with a person with dementia. We are developing specialised boxes and have a Jewish Culture Box coming soon!

 

Brands at Home

Interested in our programme but the Museum is too far? Download our activity sheets for carers and family members below and get creative with the people you care for. The activities are ideal for people living with dementia as they are meant to inspire reminiscence and encourage social and cultural engagements.

If you enjoy the activities, we would like to invite you to give feedback through this survey. Responding only takes 3 minutes and it helps us to make our resources even better.

Up for a challenge? Why don’t you try our one of our Museum of Brands themed games. Our Discovery Brands Sensory will highlight your inner brand while our Brand Challenge can be done with friends and family.
