Reminiscence Therapy

Living Military History are uniquely placed to offer Reminiscence Therapy to individuals and organisations in both in and out-patient settings. Whilst our living history specialism is military, our reminiscence therapy is a broad offering ranging from wartime memories through to the 1970s and is tailored to our client’s needs.

After completing a nursing degree at the University of Central England, Graham Bandy  attended The Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst and was commissioned into Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps (QARANC) where he served in the role of Welfare Officer during the Second Gulf War. He is currently a member of the Surrey Veterans Outreach Forum.

Graham also has many years of experience as a Community Psychiatric Nurse and Advanced Practitioner in older adult care.

This unique combination of welfare and psychiatric skills, an extensive collection of fascinating items and an enthusiasm for sharing his expertise creates the balance of care and knowledge which enables him to provide effective and meaningful Reminsicence Therapy in a one-to-one or group basis.

Graham Bandy sits on the Surrey Civilian Military Partnership Forum and is experienced in handling bids from local projects wishing to access Armed Forces Community Covenant Grant Scheme Funds

Please contact us for more details about one to one or group therapy sessions.

Living Military History are currently working with Age UK (formerly Age Concern and Help The Aged) planning Reminiscence Therapy for veterans in Oxfordshire. We are putting together a unique project which will utilise many of our specialist skills. It will fill a gap in current service provision and create a much needed resource for ex-service men and women.

Age UK

Group activities such as listening to period music and handling authentic uniforms or military items from our collections, will help participants by triggering memories and encouraging interaction. The scheme will also help to combat the loneliness many elderly people and particularly veterans can feel.

We are aiming for an initial pilot project of 6 consecutive weeks with a bid to the local Civilian Military Partnership Forum for funding in order to roll it out county wide. This is an exciting project which has the potential to provide a valuable service not currently available elsewhere
