Pastimes Reminiscence Book

Add Christmas Gift Wrap? £3.50
£8.99 VAT free

The Pastimes Reminiscence Book is a fully illustrated book featuring pastimes and activities from previous decades of life in Britain.

  • Relive happy childhood memories of playtime games and hobbies, television shows, teenage pursuits and entertainment and sporting personalities
  • Imagery that reflects life from the 1940s to the 1970s
  • Suitable for use in care homes, day centres, or as a shared experience with family & friends
  • A4 size for easy reading & viewing

The Pastimes Reminiscence Book is the second in a series, created specifically for people living with dementia. The purpose of these books is to encourage reminiscence, provide an enjoyable activity, and act as an aid to conversation and communication.

A very simplistic book

The illustrations throughout are identical to the front cover that's shown above, and there are also colouring in pages located in certain chapters.

This book is great for individuals with dementia, Alzheimer's, or cognitive loss, however please be aware that these books may not be suitable for people with early/mild cognitive loss. 

The feedback from a small number of our customers is that they underestimated how simplistic the images would be and the end-user was unhappy with them

What's included

We have included a wide variety of hobbies and pastimes which people have enjoyed throughout our chosen decades of life in Britain. From playground fun to inside games, enjoying the great outdoors, happy holidays and growing into teenage years with dancing, sports and personalities from the world of entertainment.

  • Outside Games
