Reminiscing Our Heritage Summary


Reminiscing Our Heritage: The 70s to the Millennium by Danny Walsh

This book is designed to be used by anybody working with older adults in residential, nursing and day care facilities. It provides a wealth of reminiscence material which can be used in a number of ways to rekindle memories and provide stimulating activity such as quizzes and discussion. Each year covered in the book is divided into the sections 'Major events', 'On the home front', 'Music', 'Television', 'Screen and page', 'Sport' and 'Do you remember?'. Many sections can be easily turned into quizzes and it would be simple to form a quiz from each year's material. One cannot cover all that happened in these years nor highlight all the associations each event or fact triggers, so the material is intended to be expanded on by the memories it triggers in clients during discussion. So, for example, where a film title is mentioned ask if people can recall the stars of the film, its plot and how it ended. The 'Major events' section will trigger lots of opinions too as it covers the political events of the decades so try to get the groups to discuss the ethical and moral dilemmas these posed at the time. The book is intended for use with individuals and groups but you will discover that in a group one persons memories will trigger another's and so what seems like a small topic can last for the whole session as we all try to tell our personal tales. While the content has a UK bias, it also covers the major world events of the decades but I have included a blank page for each year for you to record your own personal landmarks and achievements and also those of your local town or community.specialising in older adults mental health to a deeper level.

About Danny Walsh


Born in Louth, Lincolnshire Danny Walsh trained as a mental health nurse in 1982/5. After working in acute mental health for several years he soon developed a passion for working with older adults with mental health problems and their carers. This interest grew alongside an increasing awareness of the needs of this group and the lack of resources the group attracted when compared to services for younger adults. Danny developed a particular interest in the use of activity and groupwork and was soon running groups and activity sessions on a regular basis. He was then lucky enough to run a day hospital for several years during which many of these group work skills and activities were tried and tested. Moving into nurse education in 1997 was a big departure but one which enabled him to have an influence over older adults nursing practice via curriculum development and specialising in older adults mental health to a deeper level. He works closely with many dementia care nursing homes and NHS facilities in supporting practice and students on placement. Working with both functionally ill and cognitively impaired older people has been and continues to be a real privilege for Danny.
