Reminisce Programs

Here at Sagora Senior Living, we incorporate reminisce programs through our Memory Boxes, Cherished Memory Collections and even outings to museums of interest which help our residents and associates connect with meaningful experiences and build rapport. We emphasize the need for familiar smells throughout our community to create a soothing and homelike environment. For example, the aroma of homemade bread that our baking club prepared that day or the smell of peppermint in the morning during our Dining with GRACE program stimulates our residents to wake up and get moving.

Cherished Memory Collections

These are baskets or boxes with items that are intended to elicit stories and memories from the residents. Each box is filled with photos, familiar smells, recipes and any other tangible items that residents can share stories about and reminisce with. This program can be used for residents who enjoy rummaging. Memory collection boxes stirs memories or thoughts in a tactile way. Associates help by asking open-ended questions about box contents. Residents may also choose to show and share treasured mementos in group settings. Ms. Smith and other residents may discover common experiences as she shares stories her about her keepsakes.

Memory Box

Outside each resident apartment is a shadow box or memory box. We work with the family to complete these to reflect our
resident’s interests and hobbies. These are decorated with a variety of items. The main purpose of the box is:

  1. To help residents recognize their rooms
  2. Create conversation starters for associates to be able to build rapport with the residents as they greet them throughout the day and especially when entering their apartment
