  The Winding House has been granted the status of Full Accreditation by CyMAL: Museums, Archives and Libraries Wales

 

 

First in Wales

The Winding House Museum is set to become Wales’ first Dementia Friendly reminiscence centre, offering a variety of activities throughout the museum. All their staff are now ‘Dementia Friends’ and they are working with the Alzheimer’s Society and Caerphilly 50+ Positive Action to tailor their exhibitions and creating new displays that encourage reminiscence, so that Carers, relatives and those living with dementia are also able to enjoy the museum.

A regular feature will be one of the Social Services Reminiscence pop up ‘rooms’ evoking key places and periods of the past such as the local pub or a 1950s living room with lots of hands on activities for people to engage with.  The Winding House will add to these rooms a display of local items from the museum’s collection to give the Pod a local twist.

Cllr Christine Forehead the Member Champion for Older People commented, “It is great to see the Winding House leading the way in creating a Dementia Supportive environment. It means that people living with dementia like anyone else can pop in, have a cup of tea and cake and enjoy this lovely museum.”
