Nestlé Reminiscence Pack

The Nestlé UK & Ireland archive has been inundated with requests from carers and reminiscence groups who want historical packaging to help prompt happy memories among patients diagnosed with dementia, or memory problems.

We can't resist a challenge, and have put together a reminiscence pack that uses some of the most beautiful items from our archive to create a versatile, varied sensory experience. Our history pack can be downloaded and printed out to instantly create a whole collection of materials from our historical archive.

We're proud to be one of the first businesses to produce a pack this kind, and hope that historic images of our famous brands will prompt memories and conversations.

The pack has been produced with advice from the UK based Alzheimer’s Society, which leads the fight against dementia in the UK. It is currently being trialled by the Society in two support groups that run activities for people with dementia and their carers.
