Memory Lane at Kippington

Dementia residents at Kippington Nursing Home in Sevenoaks have been enjoying special sessions that are run to help them engage with past memories.

Many suffering with dementia may feel disoriented, confused, and/or excluded from some Social Group activities due to their condition. Activity Organiser Linda Crees at Kippington has organised a dementia-specific group known as ‘Memory Lane’ to help conquer this issue, and ensure that those with dementia feel include and happy.

The ‘Memory Lane’ group takes place in the first floor lounge, which tends to be quiet and is therefore great for those that attend the group. The group concentrates on reminiscence based (audio-visual) and simple age-appropriate activities, such as the cake decorating, that bring back memories that they are able to share with each other.

We all know that keeping active is important, Edwin and his team are there to ensure that residents experience an environment that is both stimulating and socially active from musical entertainment to sensory stimulation, animal visits, exercises, pampering, memory games, art and crafts, food based activities and more.

We look forward to future sessions, and learning more about each other.

Kippington provides residential and nursing care in a beautiful converted Victorian building for up to 51 elderly people.
