Pam Schweitzer

Pam Schweitzer was founder and Artistic Director of Age Exchange Theatre Trust from 1983 – 2005, the first full- time professional theatre company to specialise in touring reminiscence theatre across the UK and Europe. In 2000 she was awarded the MBE for services to Reminiscence and she continues to direct the European Reminiscence Network, lecturing, directing and training in reminiscence. She is an Honorary Fellow of the University of Greenwich. Reminiscence is a vital way to stimulate communication and promote confidence and self-worth in people with dementia. Her approach is to give those who care for people with dementia a clear sense of how reminiscence can be used to greatly improve their quality of life, opening the world’s first Reminiscence Centre in London in 1987, as a focus for professional training, a meeting place for people of all generations and cultures to participate in reminiscence projects. She has published widely on her work – see www.pamschweitzer.com
