Time to remember
Time to Remember is a pilot project using the collections of Conwy County Borough Council Museum and Archive Services and Llandudno Museum to design themed memory boxes for use with BCUHB Arts Health & Wellbeing Programme at Llandudno Hospital with Dementia Patients, with linked arts workshops carried out on site and at the adjacent Ty Llewelyn community centre.
I was commissioned to put three handling collections together using archive materials as a starting point – the collections were based on home – work and holidays and included objects, smell, photos, song and sound using i pads.
I worked closely with the dementia support staff and patients with dementia.
The 3 collections have been used successfully in Llandudno hospital by the Dementia Support staff to help patients with dementia during their hospital stay.
