Lots of conversations to choose from!
What is Let’s Chat?
Let’s Chat DVDs are designed to provide a unique opportunity for connection of an older person with their companion through stimulating conversation.
Let’s Chat DVDs are perfectly suited for people with a recent diagnosis of dementia or for those who have recently attended an NHS Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) course.
We use familiar themes in our DVDs to provide cognitive stimulation through activities for people with dementia that support them and their companions to connect to the wider world together.
We have created themes that encourage conversations and are based on memories that are often familiar to us all. Themes can include: A Nice Cup Of Tea or Harvest or The Seaside. There are lots of ideas to build conversations around.
If you are less able to get out and about it is even more important to make time to chat and to find some joy in connecting in a shared experience together. Let’s Chat is ideal for a loved one at home, for residents in a care home or for clients of a home care company.
