MUSIC CARE CONVERSATION CARDS are a collection of pictures and questions formatted in a spiral bound, laminated booklet that catalyze memories and conversation about music in our lives. Pictures may be used themselves as a prompt for engagement. Open-ended and more structured questions provide conversation starters around themes.
Conversation Cards were developed by Room 217 to:
Support relational care
Strengthen personal identity and self-worth
Reduce loneliness and boredom
Increase pleasure and cognitive stimulation
Reinforce meaningful experiences
“The conversation cards made it easy to bring up conversation and get my Grandma talking about old memories. She was smiling when looking at the pictures. Nothing better than that!”- Andrea, Family Caregiver
