With Many Happy Returns Chatterbox cards you can have more connected conversations

Many Happy Returns Chatterbox cards are perfect for instant connection and conversation with older people.

Connecting and sharing across the generations can be fun, even if it can be more challenging if the older person is living with dementia, even though they are the experts! When we know more about the person’s life as a younger person, it enriches our understanding of them now. We believe that the better we know a person, the more aligned our care for them can be.

We invited 160 people aged 65 to 99 years old to describe their happy, early years memories. Their recollections became two sets of Many Happy Returns Chatterbox flash cards, featuring everyday life in the 1940s and 1950s with reminiscence triggers and prompts to inspire instant, enjoyable conversations.

Inside each box, you’ll find 26 large-size picture cards with wide-ranging background information and conversational triggers that prompt instant real-story sharing and fun conversations with anyone recalling their youth, creating togetherness and reconnection.

The cards relate to DoE National Curriculum History Key Stage 3 study programme, so they’re great for young teenagers too.

"It was a birthday present for a friend who has dementia. It's been an ideal conversation starter both for our friend and her visitors alike. Thank you."

Mrs G

"I discovered Chatterbox cards by chance at an Action on Hearing Loss meeting where the facilitator used a them. I realised the Chatterbox series would be useful for people living with dementia and purchased a box to give to the staff of a care home where my wife is a resident. They were very pleased with them."

Peter

"I ordered the Chatterbox Cards which we have enjoyed very much and they really helped to prompt my husband's memory and conversation."

Pauline

"A good quality product which is helping my grandad talk about his life to his great grandchildren."

Natasha

"My dad has dementia and I sometimes feel at a loss to initiate meaningful conversation. The cards are very useful and I am delighted with them. My dad chats about each one and it’s amazing what triggers his memory. I can vividly see his enjoyment and it’s an activity we can do together. I live in Dublin and the order process was very user-friendly. Many thanks, overall we are both very happy with the cards."

Meghan

"Thanks for dispatching the cards so quickly. My mother and I enjoyed looking at them and chatting about what she remembered about the 1940s. I am sure that I'll return to the website and order the 1950s!"

Diana

"I bought these cards for my father and they have proved very successful to get him and others chatting about their past. Not only very entertaining but also extremely interesting because the cards can provoke memories and stories that would otherwise have remained hidden or forgotten forever. They have helped recall experiences that are interesting for all the family to hear and share. Delivery was very prompt too."
