Rathside is featured on TV!
Pauline our registered Manager has been interviewed by Estuary TV about the new reminiscence room at Rathside Residential Care Home.
The room was opened recently by the Local MP and featured in the local Scunthorpe Telegraph. Now it's also been on TV!
As Pauline explains the reminiscence room has been created to help residents connect with their past. This is particularly important for those living with dementia as they find it much easier to remember the distant past than the recent past.
Spending time in the reminiscence room helps them to feel comfortable and relaxed by experiencing familiar surroundings and objects.
The room was created in conjunction with residents who contributed ideas about what sort of items to include and how the room should look.
