In this NHS film, Elizabeth Gooch from AgeUK explains how volunteers from her organisation are using a memory box scheme to help patients with dementia. 

The memory boxes contain a range of items such as postcards, old pictures and even objects such as footballs.

A person with dementia is then encouraged to pick an item and this can then be used to help recall memories and open up communication.
