Request for Photos – Dementia Awareness Week

If at all possible, may we please ask you to bring in some photos of your relative, and any special occasions before the 15th May for us to borrow? We plan on taking a trip down Memory Lane and would like some photos to use as prompts. Their wedding day, special holidays, achievements etc. Any photos of them as young children would be great too for a game of “Guess the Resident”. Please write on the back of the photo some details to help us if you can. Thanks in advance!
