The staff at our community try to be innovative and hands-on with attempts to help residents reminisce as Alzheimer’s or dementia steals their memories.

As part of our Reminiscing Program at White Oaks at McHenry, some residents recently took a special trip down memory lane with a hands-on adventure at the Volo Auto Museum.

We had so much fun sharing stories as we walked through the museum and saw the old cars. There was lots and fun and laughter and a little ribbing throughout our adventure.

To top off the day a stop, we stopped at a local restaurant for a late afternoon snack. A good time was had by all, and the next day, there was still chatter in the halls about the fun we had and everyone could see pictures from our outing on the “Caught in the Act” bulletin board.
