Finding the Fun in Dementia

This resource has been written by Karen Meenan of Making Hay Reminiscence Theatre in collaboration with Engaging Dementia.

My name is Karen Meenan and I am the founder of Making Hay Reminiscence
Theatre. In this booklet I share my experience of reminiscence and how it enabled my family to help my mother experience fun and joy in the years following her diagnosis with Alzheimer’s. I also give guidelines and suggestions for how you might use reminiscence to support you to connect with the person with dementia in your life. If you have recently received a diagnosis of dementia in your family
or if you are a carer and you want to get to know your client a little better, you might find some of the suggested shared activities useful to you.
