Picture News Care offers weekly discussion and follow-up activity resources, plus a weekly Care chat video for care homes residents. A large glossy poster with an engaging image and ‘big question’ introduces a current affairs story with open-ended questions guiding residents through their own opinions and back to historical big news events and residents’ own personal memories. Using reminiscence as an aid to the here and now, our discussion activities follow a consistent weekly pattern and can be recommended as part of a cognitive stimulation therapy programme. We also offer regular certified CPD training for activity coordinators and care managers.
