On my show today will be an interview with Steve Mills of the Bristol Radical History society about a burial ground which has been discovered of inmates of the Eastville workhouse in Victorian times.

On a recent show we had Chloe Meineck, the inventor of The Music Memory Box.  This is a new multisensory reminiscence product for people with dementia and their families. By linking music to important trinkets in someone’s life,  using simple technology, the Music Memory Box offers a more effective way of reminiscing.

When an object is placed on the sensor in the middle of the box an associated tune is played which can help sufferers reminisce about happy times in the their lives.  The box is also very pleasing to look at and can hold photos of loved ones in the lid .

 

The box is available for individuals or groups. Chloe Meineck is the inventor based at the Pervasive Media Studio in Watershed and has been working with care homes, day centres and memory cafes across the UK to develop the product.
