Memory Loan Boxes

Memory Loan Boxes

Memory loans boxes are available for care homes and older people’s groups to borrow from The Box.

Reminiscence sessions using our Memory Loan Boxes are a popular way of rekindling old memories using objects and images as a starting point.

The Box has four new themed loan boxes for care homes and older people’s groups to borrow. Each one contains a mixture of objects, images, a DVD film and a ‘How To’ guide book.

Boxes include:

  • Out on the Town - a Dansette record player which opens to reveal a selection of objects and images relating to nights out.
  • Mystery Objects - a mixture of domestic objects which have been chosen to stimulate your lateral thinking skills in order to deduce what they are.
  • All at Sea - a wooden sea chest containing artefacts and images that will appeal to anyone with an interest in maritime history or naval heritage.
  • Pick and Mix - a general selection of everyday objects and photographs designed to stimulate memories.

If you would like to book a memory box, learn more about the boxes or need advice about using them, please contact us.
