Lynne, the new Activity Coordinator at The Sycamores in Wakefield, is keen to explore different activities that encourage memories.
This week Lynne made small bags, out of various materials and filled them with different scents. She then sewed them up and shared them with residents throughout the care home. Even those in bed took part.
Some bags made people sneeze others had residents chuckling, but all the bags were designed to start conversations and encourage reminiscence.
The residents enjoyed this activity, and everyone agreed it had been fun to take part.
