Regression Bundle

Frank Beirne Fabrics are proud to present our new reminiscence basket. The basket is part of our brand new line of memorabilia packs now available to order directly from us.

The basket can be used in a group setting or one to one with a carer or family member. The purpose of this product is to give the person the opportunity to identify each item amd its intended purpose, to reminisce about an occasion when they recall using it and to discuss family life, occupations etc. in years gone by. Discussing each item can help improve communication and social skills. It can sometimes be difficult for a person who has dementia to recall events on spoken word alone and so visual prompt recognition and stimulate the senses.

The Household Reminiscence basket gives the person the opportunity to share memories and life experiences with others in a positive way, hoping to give the person a sense of identity, self-worth and a purpose.

The items are presented in a vintage style handled wicker grocery basket and contain the following items:

  • Wooden & Stainless steel washboard
  • Carabolic soap with holder
  • Peg bag and wooden "dolly" pegs
  • Oven glove
  • Two tea towels
  • Apron
  • Mixing bowl
  • Wooden spoons
  • Rolling pin
  • Pie vent (Blackbird)
  • Whisk
  • Wooden scrubbing brush
  • Ladies memorabilia pack which contains: Ration Book, Radio rentals brochure, More fun with your food booklet, Hygena kitchen pamphlet, Ponting's fashion catalogue, More glass in your home brochure, miscellaneous ephemera and a selection of 1950s household name cards.
