Transcript of Memory Cube Keepsake

This program is a comparison and group discussion of decade-by-decade historical Toronto photos. This activity offers a glimpse of the various developments and transformations of a city that's often accused of having a troubled relationship with its past.
Physical: this activity involves many physical aspects such as large motor skills such as grasping & fine motor skills such as grasping of the various supplies needed for this activity. Other physical aspects will be working on hand-eye coordination and hand strengthening (especially when using scissors)
Intellectual: participants of this activity will be able to think about what aspects of their lives they would like to share on their memory cube so they can choose these items independently. They can also discuss with others in the group why they chose specific images
Emotional: this activity can bring about many different emotions in each individual. Some may be having a good day and choose to put bright colourful images on one side and during a second session might be having a bad day and could opt for darker less optimistic photographs. This is all accepted and even desired because this is an activity that can also act as a therapeutic exercise similar to a Mandela
Social: This is a group activity that will enable all members to participate, discuss, and share their feelings, emotions, memories, etc… during the group sessions. If someone does not want to talk they don’t have to but they can still benefit from sitting and listening to the other members of the group and still enjoy the social interaction.
Spiritual: this side of the box is completely optional to all members. If they are religious and choose to decorate it in that fashion they may do so or if they like doing things like meditation they can find images that represent their spiritual needs and interests and cover that side accordingly
Goals: To emphasize social interaction and maintain cognitive function with residents while providing them with an activity that will result in a Memory Cube that they can keep for themselves to share with family and friends

Action: Given supplies residents cut and paste their chosen images on one side of their cube.

Condition: scissors, glue, magazines, paper, pictures.

Criteria: During a 30 minute period residents will decorate one side of their cube (completion time can and will vary with each individual resident)
We will observe the residents to see if they are enjoying themselves and this can be evidenced by their smiling, talking to other residents, and the feedback that they give us. We will also be able to evaluate the participants by seeing their interaction with the other members of the group and afterwards seeing if they are sharing the cube with people who come to visit them.
What do you think!?
This is a craft based program designed to encourage reminiscing, self-expression, socializing, verbalizing, & creativity. Given a 6-8" cardboard cube, glue and a wide assortment of pictures, participants will select & glue photos/images that represent meaningful aspects of their lives on 1 side of the box per session. 30 minute sessions will run 2 times a week. Music will play during our session for sensory stimulation purposes.
Let`s share memories of Toronto
