Vintage televisions help improve minds

Groundbreaking therapeutic sessions involving “portable reminiscence rooms” for older people experiencing memory loss, confusion and dementia are now on offer.

Sessions staged by Futures Homescape and Age UK are in a “RemPod” fitted with a vintage television and classic programmes help recall memories of family and first homes. Angela Foxhall, from Futures Homescape, said: “It’s designed to provide a safe space where attendees can relax and re-awaken memories.”

The sessions started yesterday, February 5 at Manor Farm Community 
Centre, Belper.
