A student nurse gave us the idea of ‘Potted Histories’. She said it would be helpful to have some prompt cards with some facts about local history – to help stimulate conversations with older people.Over the past 12 months we have had a University of Sheffield MA History student – Claudia, working on this. After speaking with people with dementia and care staff at Darnall Dementia Group and Grenoside Grange, Claudia researched 8 aspects of Sheffield local history. With the help of a designer this information has been made into 8 A5 cards which will be available online and in print form. Here is a sneak preview of one small part of a ‘Potted History’.
The full set will be available to view here in the next month.
