Memory Bank is an award-winning series of innovative DVD resource packs using archive films to bring past events and experiences to life, prompting stories and memories to share and enjoy. Great for reminiscence, memory and life story work, for older people and those with dementia.
Memory Bank packs have everything you need for a reminiscence session - user guide, film notes, discussion ideas, activities and photos. These resources accompany archive films spanning six decades, carefully selected along familiar themes to promote shared memories of childhood, growing up, loved ones and family, sense of place, home and work life.
Winner of 'Outstanding Dementia Care Product' at the National Dementia Care Awards 2013, 100% of Memory Bank users would recommend it to others. Director Sue Howard talks about the creation of Memory Bank and our story so far in this month's Journal of Dementia Care.
Development of Memory Bank was funded by Screen Heritage UK Programme: a partnership between the British Film Institute,
Screen Yorkshire and English Regional Film Archives, to safeguard the future of the UK’s National and Regional Film Archives. Funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
Our thanks also to current funders: The Dunhill Medical Trust.
