Today, residents participated in our reminiscence box talk and activities. Residents looked through different memorabilia pieces including old coins, posters, aprons and kitchen appliances. Staff and residents discussed how things had changed, how much time they used to spend on daily kitchen activities from shopping and preparing the daily meal from what could be purchased and grown, to the daily chore of washing and mending clothes. The staff also joined in by trying on some of the vintage clothing much to the amusement of the residents.
