Working at the Museum yesterday, I was inspired by the preview session in advance of public opening later in the year.
It struck me that so many of the exhibits and artefacts would be within living memory of some of the people I have been working with. I think that the process of regression with dementia opens up very clear distant memories and that this clarity could offer detail and anecdotal information to the museum. As well as being interesting and fun to have a preview visit, of course.
I made a couple of calls and spoke with Angus at the Museum about times and Gaelic speaking. This museum is the first to offer primarily Gaelic language. We have organised for a couple of group preview sessions to take place over the next couple of weeks from a care home and a day centre.
I’m looking forward to them!
