Members also hear about The Archie Project and meet its scarecrow mascot
Honiton Carers Support Group enjoyed a brilliant presentation on Wednesday (February 13) by Fiona Mahoney from Reminiscence Learning, based in Wellington. She gave a brief outline of her background as an occupational therapist and a carer. She set up a charity in 2001 as she wanted to teach about reminiscence.
Fiona spoke of the various types of dementia and had some very interesting hands-on tools to make the understanding of the condition very easy.
She also talked about the Archie Project – the name of the scarecrow mascot for Reminiscence Learning created in red and yellow - the colours being the last to go as the eyes age.
She was thanked by Winnie Cameron for her brilliant presentation and a social followed whilst refreshments were served.
Honiton Carers next meet on Wednesday 27th February at Hospiscare, Kings House when Mary Bolshaw will be giving a talk on “Raising the first Million”
