I’ll tell you what really has helped: boxes. The fact that I don’t have to scuttle round shops. All that planning time is invisible and it’s great to have the support. I’ve borrowed reminiscence boxes from museums, but a lot of the time it’s lots of written info. These boxes are visual and tactile and have things to pass around and handle.
