"This book offers the activity provider with access to the wealth of experience of the occupational therapist authors. With 52 multi-sensory reminiscence group session plans it provides group facilitators with the ideas and resources to run seasonally-themed activities that support reminiscence through the use of all the senses, stimulating not only long term memory but also sensory-motor skills and function. This will be a great resource for care homes and day services for older adults, particularly those living with memory loss and cognitive difficulties."

"From experienced group facilitators to those who are new to the role, these sessions are invaluable. They are practical and easy to use and the topics covered are diverse and stimulating. They would appeal to a wide age range within older adults.I have worked for 20 years facilitating groups for older adults and I would snap up this book."
