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 Rogers, working with us 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 are available for you to download and use.
Thank you to Sheffield Health and Social Care Charity for funding which paid for the design of the cards.
