The Memory Box Network

The Memory Box Network, a charity aiming to bring together social media and dementia care involving online reminiscence therapy to help provide a better quality of life for anyone affected by dementia

Founded 2011

  • Mission statement

    The Memory Box Network is committed to providing online innovative tools that help to increase the quality of life for those living with and those caring for people with dementia. Reminiscence therapy, memory books or boxes play a valuable part in the treatment of dementia and by using today's technology we can increase the effectiveness and ease in which a family member or carer can deliver this therapy.

    By combining the therapy with an online user system that allows people to upload and share valuable content that would otherwise stay in single use or hidden from everyone we are able to bring memories to thousand's if not ten's of thousands of individuals that will benefit from what we are doing.

    Our mission is to provide a free system that people can use to get quality time with people they love. Reminiscence therapy has also been shown to increase social inclusion, combat loneliness and reduce the level of dependency on medical intervention including anti-depression medication for those living with dementia.
