Reminiscence Kits
A visit to the past …with friends or family.

Regina residents now have access to a set of portable heritage collections developed by the Regina Plains Museum.

The Reminiscence Kits consist of artifacts, pictures and discussion questions which provide an opportunity for individuals- as well as friends and family – to reflect on the heritage of Regina and surrounding area.

The Kits are packaged conveniently in a suitcase and can be borrowed to review at leisure in your facility or residential complex.

Themes

Kits are focussed on six different themes:

  • Home and Farm
  • The Kitchen
  • Fashion and Toiletries
  • Leisure Activities
  • Healthcare

The contents of each kit can be explored through the senses of sight, touch, smell and sound. Instructions on how to use the kit as well as an evaluation form are provided.

Why Borrow A Kit?

Reminiscing can assist in maintaining some of our cognitive abilities as they relate to memory, judgment, retention skills – and communication skills.

Visiting the past can also facilitate interaction with other residents through discussion, and relating the contents of the Kits to experiences of the group.

This program is ideal for those residents who may be isolated as a result of health or economic conditions.

How to Borrow a Kit

Reminiscence kits are borrowed directly from the museum for a $5 fee. Arrangements for delivery may be made at an extra cost. Contact the museum at 780-9435.

Volunteer Opportunities

You can help the Regina Plains Museum enhance community through a shared understanding of where we live. The museum is looking for volunteers to assist in a number of areas.
