Creating memories through conversations towards the end of life

PeaceHospiceLogoCreating memories is an intergenerational project to encourage conversations towards the end of life.
In the prototype, 12 students and 4 patients from The Peace Hospice, worked together to produce a mixed media memory picture about the patients’ lives. The artwork incorporated photographs of objects, pictures and memorabilia collected by patients, which told the story of significant events for them.
To celebrate the project, they had an exhibition and tea party where patients’ families, the students and members of the community visited the hospice.
Peace Hospice hope to make the project a regular part of the service offered to patients in end of life care.
