Informative Talks comes to Belmont House

Nigel from informative Talks visited the residents of Belmont House in Sutton this week. He came to Belmont to give a presentation on the 50’s using slides, music and adverts.

Reminiscence work can help manage the symptoms of dementia, and is just one of many things that can help people to live well. It involves talking about things from the past, using prompts such as photos, familiar objects or music just like those brought along by Informative Talks.

Sometimes these approaches are combined using a memory box of favourite possessions or memorabilia. Today we used slides, music and adverts that the residents would remember, techniques like this are popular because they draw on early memories, which people with dementia tend to retain best.

There is evidence that reminiscence work, can improve mood, wellbeing and some mental abilities such as memory. By talking about who they are, people with dementia can help others focus on them, and not their dementia.

The residents loved him and Marjorie remarked ‘It brought back so many memories’ and asked him to come back again.

He also covers the 60s, 70s, 80s and film stars of golden eras, we look forward to welcoming him back to get the residents talking about more topics in the future.

Belmont House provides specialist residential, nursing and dementia care in a purpose built environment.
