The Conversation Starter Kit for Seniors consists of a selection of 40 images of buildings, landmarks, scenes and objects from the National Collection. Each image is accompanied by a number of carefully crafted questions to facilitate meaningful conversations between seniors and volunteers. The kit will be used in various Senior Activity Centres and eldercare agencies in 2018, and will be made available for visitors to our Heritage Institutions including the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall, Malay Heritage Centre and Indian Heritage Centre during their visits. In addition, a softcopy of the Conversation Starter Kit can be downloaded here.
The Conversation Starter Kit is co-developed by NHB, National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and social services organisations Care Corner, SAGE Counselling Centre, TOUCH Community Services and Yong-en Care Centre.
