Living history at Lammermuir House

We were delighted to welcome Caroline and Jen from the living history group ‘Catching the Past’ to Lammermuir House Care Home.

Caroline and Jen brought ‘memory suitcases’ filled with everyday items from the 1940’s and 1950’s and talked about how they were used as we got to take a close-up look and handle them.

From Lux soap flakes to dolls, photographs to clothing, we were transported back in time for a fascinating trip down memory lane.

Resident, Dorothy, said: “I remember my dad having that brand of cigarettes.”

Magic Moments Coordinator, Alex, said: “Huge thanks to Caroline and Jen for coming in and showing us all their treasures, which really got our residents reminiscing and talking about their memories of the past.”

Lammermuir House Care Home is located in Dunbar and provides nursing care,  nursing dementia care and palliative care.
