Shift from memory to imagination!
“When memory loss separates you from a loved one, Time Slips invites you to shift…from memory to IMAGINATION.”
This creative journal is designed for 1-1 use with people who have memory loss. It uses imaginative storytelling as the central activity, with the used of carefully selected image and question prompts, but there is no pressure here - there are no wrong answers!
The facilitator guides, structures and focuses the session content whilst letting the participant retain control, giving them time to formulate their thoughts and express themselves in any way they wish, without any correction - their words in this session are heard, valued, acknowledged and affirmed.
The emphasis is on replacing the pressure to remember with the freedom to imagine, strengthening connections with others via conversation and storytelling.
Content: 10 inspirational images, sample open ended questions, and blank pages for recording stories. Ten matching postcards encourage participants to share favourite lines with friends or family.
