What We Do

Welcome to Reminisce Connect and join us in building a community of cheerful and joyful elderly in Singapore through bridging relationships:

– caregivers with their loved ones

– professionals with their clients

– elderly-to-fellow elderly

We design customised training programmes and offer workshops to caregivers and professionals in the use of curated archives and adaptive oral history interviews to help you connect with your loved ones and clients respectively.  Our two flagship programs are as follows:

TAKE OFF YOUR CAP! 

Take off your Cap! is a 12-week group reminiscence program targeted at family carers and professionals working with the elderly in institutions or centres.  At the end of this program, participants will appreciate the use of role play and artifacts such as photographs, oral history interviews, audio visual materials, music and art in engaging the elderly in a group setting.  They will also learn how to use the Curated Archives of the Person’s belongings (CAP) as a resource tool to trigger the elderly senses, stimulate memories of the past and encourage the elderly to tell their stories, voice their opinions and share their feelings.

TELL ME YOUR STORY PA AND MA!

Tell me your Story Pa and Ma!” is a customized one-to-one reminiscence program  targeted at family caregivers/volunteers/professionals who want to learn the skills of connecting and communicating with the elderly through interviewing and recording their life story.  At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to craft appropriate interview questions and apply good interviewing techniques skills with the elderly. The interview process will help them recollect and reflect on their life experiences for the purpose of restructuring negative life events and affirming positive ones leading to the discovery of their self-worth.

You may write or call us for more information here.  We will be delighted to have a little chat with you, not just about the coming workshops but also bounce ideas on how we can build better bridges for and with the elderly.
