Wedding-themed memory box wins award

A care home has scooped an award for its latest project. Staff, residents and families of the Field View Care Home near Hartlepool are thrilled that their wedding-themed memory box has won a regional award.

Field View, a 38-bedded home which offers residential care for the elderly and those living with dementia, created their winning wedding-themed reminiscence box with the help of staff, residents, families and visitors who donated items.

Residents discussed memories of their own wedding day and attending the weddings of others to come up with ideas. Items included traditional good luck charms, a vintage fine bone china tea set and silver cutlery that would have been used at the wedding dinner, wedding photos and clothing, including a 1960’s wedding dress, veils and garters.
