Benefits Of Reminiscing
Reminiscing on the past can help improve memory cognition and helps restore a sense of purpose. This is often referred to as reminiscing therapy. The Guidebook is designed to spark conversations that will bring out joyful memories from your loved one and create deeper connections.
Engaging brain areas linked to so-called ‘off task’ mental activities (such as reminiscing) can actually boost performance on some challenging mental tasks, according to new research.
Reminiscence therapy performed over a short period of time in closed groups was shown to be more effective than everyday conversations in the treatment of elderly people with dementia.
Memories of the past represent a valuable resource, which can be used to facilitate person-centered care, improve social interaction, or simply provide the theme for an hour’s activity.
Research has shown that stimulating reminiscence in the elderly can be a meaningful activity and holds promise for positive effects on well-being.
