My House of Memories app
Our easy to use My House of Memories app allows you to explore objects from the past and share memories together. It can be used by anyone, but has been designed for, and with, people living with dementia and their carers.
The app has pictures of objects from across the decades, which are brought to life with sound, music and descriptions, and provide an easy-to-use way to help people living with dementia explore things that resonate with them.
You can browse the objects, which include everyday things such as cinema tickets, a Singer sewing machine and a 10 shilling note. You can save your favourite objects to a digital memory tree, digital memory box or timeline.
With themes including school, work, leisure and maritime, there’s a world of objects to explore.
The My House of Memories app now has a brand new ‘My Memories’ feature, which enables users to upload their own photos to share precious personal memories with the people they care for living with dementia.
